For example, I got a lovely oven pottery dish with a lid, which I added baked goodies to! Also, has plain pottery items, which are perfect... More

My husband and I just returned from our third trip to Ireland. While in Galway, we made our third trip to Royal Tara China to add to our collection of fine gift items and hand painted china.
