Collecting Ceramic Honey Pots

When I was young, my Grandma Carrie gave me a ceramic honey pot. I treasured it so much. Over the years, I would find one here and there in junk stores, or an antique store and buy it. Eventually, I ended up with a collection! So, for Show and Tell Friday, I'm featuring my honey bee collection!

This is the one my Grandma gave me way back when.

My Mother-in-law gave me this precious one. It is old Belleek.

Then I found these Belleek "wanna bees" later that were made in Occupied Japan.

As you can see, I have alot of "wanna bees" in my collection.

These two pots were made in Western Germany by Goebel.

A Goebel "wanna bee." Probably made in Japan.

I love these two brown pots! They go nicely with my majolica.

Besides the honey pots, I also have other bee hive treasures. Like this pitcher with the honeycomb relief in green and yellow. I love the twisted handle.

And this little pitcher, also with a cool twisted handle.

Or my everyday creamer and sugar set.

There is even this brown tea pot which is a reproduction.

And this is where most of my bee hive collection "lives!"

I hope you have enjoyed my little "show and tell" of my honey bees.
