Gone Potty

My dad has a large collection (hundreds) of antique pot lids. Most of his collection are the colourful transfer ware known as Prattware. He also has quite a few of these more utilitarian lids, used for toothpaste, cold cream and anchovy paste. I like the black and white ones better, but it is intriguing to see the difference in design which indicates the purpose of the item. The colourful Prattware used as souvenirs and the monotone lids used for practical items.
