In 1985, a New York movie executive began buying antique English and French furniture, art, crystal and porcelain. Moving to Los Angeles, she added California pottery and Asian porcelain. The Emporium Ltd. was born out of that first collection. She still buys only what she would want in her own home. Her philosophy is simple: "Always buy a piece you love. You'll find a place for it. But if you didn't love it at full price, don't buy it on sale. It won't withstand the test of time."
Why we love this
Superb Robinson & Leadbeater Staffordshire English pottery match striker with a golden yellow fleur-de-lis emblazoned against a rare turquoise-glaze crest, and a beribboned banner proclaiming "Wakefield.". Petite size adds to its Victorian charm. Marked "R & L" with a company mark used from 1885 through 1905.
