The over zealous owner needs to get a life. Wont allow any images which we found quite upsetting. He needs to move with the times and realise that he is only a custodian.

Well worth the visit and a great collection of plates. One small hitch can not take pictures. Great old building well set out and itemized would go back

The richness of information and the whole interesting collection are definitely fun to pay for a visit :) and if you like ceramics, you may like to talk with the knowledgeable owner as he could surely tell you more inside stories :)
