Antiques On The Square

Hi!
 
Welcome to our November newsletter! 
 
 The holidays are fast approaching. 
The leaves are changing and plans are being made for Thanksgiving and Christmas festivities.
 
The merchants and businesses in Madison are planning to make Madison look more beautiful than ever this season. The kickoff date for Madison's Bicentennial Christmas is November 21. The downtown Christmas lights will be turned on and the shops will be decorated. It will be absolutely beautiful!
 
We at Antiques On The Square will be hosting our Holiday Open House on November 21st. Please join us!  
 
There will be many new items on our website - please click to view our inventory:
 
Featured Item For November: Antique Majolica - 
 
Circa 1815 Antique English Davenport Majolica Dishes
 
 
Majolica is one of the most popular forms of antique china. It is identified by its deep rich colored glazes. It is often reproduced - and some new majolica is quite beautiful.
But, antique majolica is quite recognizable, and as with most china, the antique pieces usually have a desirable patina and quality that can not be reproduced.    
 
November Special: website orders only -15% off any antique Majolica:Click here for more information about antique majolica! Use discount code #112009. This offer is good for November only!
 
Next month will feature a different special discount item just for our website customers!
 
 
Please share this newsletter with your friends!

Holiday Platters & Treasured Family Heirloom China - 
(Cranberry Sauce and Antique Transferware Do Not Mix Well.) 
  
 Antique English Spode Turkey Platter
 
It's that time again. Time for wonderful  home cooked holiday dinners. Time for making rich memories filled with family and friends. 
 
Time to pull out your beautiful heirloom china - treasured china possibly handed down from your mother, grandmother, or even great grandmother.
 
But, are you sure you want to actually use your treasured china for serving your holiday dinner? Just keep in mind - can it be replaced?  If so, use it and enjoy it. If that grand turkey platter or rare soup tureen can't be replaced, maybe you don't want to actually use it. Maybe the best tribute to your ancestors would be to put it on display in a prominent place and keep it safe for future generations!
 
You might think "Grandmother used it and I should use it also." Well, maybe Grandmother was secretly relieved when the meal was over and her treasured platter was safely put away!
 
If you do choose to use antique china, just give it a little extra care. Treat it as you would anything over a hundred years old. Protect it from drastic temperature changes. Hand wash, but don't let it sit in liquid because most old china will have at least some crackle to the glaze that makes it more porous - remember the cranberry stains. Also, never scrub china with gold trim or any handpainted areas. Usually the handpainted areas are more susceptible to wear because they were applied on top of the glaze after the china was fired. 
 
Yes, fresh crushed cranberries will leave lovely pink stains on that treasured antique blue and white transferware platter. I know from experience!
