Parkes Collection Puzzle

Parkes Collection PuzzleThis month's puzzle shows one of the many cabinets filled with transferware in the lovely home of Colin and Patricia Parkes in the UK. The photo was taken during a visit to view the Parkes Collection during the 2015 TCC Annual Meeting in England. Assembled over decades, the vast collection includes pieces in virtually every stylistic category of transferware. In this one cabinet we see Greek mythology, Chinoiserie, pastoral landscapes, floral motifs, and other categories. We were deeply saddened to hear of the recent death of Colin, at age 95, and send our condolences to Patricia and their children, grandchildren, and great grandchild.
