I almost doubled my folk art plate collection on the weekend. First Ms Cinti swelled the ranks with the little Russian number in the top right (the bright orange flowers on the black background) and then I found the two Norwegian 'Rosemaling' plates at Camberwell market on Sunday. It's the scale of these new Rosemaling plates that I love. They're BIG, at nearly 50cm in diameter.
I intend to have a wall of these soon. It seems a lot of cultures have timber folk art plates and I'd like to collect a few different kinds. I have my eye on a couple of stunning Mexican numbers and I would love to find a French example but they are rare and very, very expensive.
What are you collecting at the moment?
