When I was growing up , we had the lobster dish. It was a wedding present to my parents in 1953. It was a relish dish that came out at holidays. It matched nothing and still we used it. When my mother passed away , the 5 kids divided things, but no one wanted the lobster dish. "I can't let it go to goodwill " I said. So , I took it , even though it didn't match anything and still we used it. Then, I found ebay and other people's lobsters that they could part with . And now I own an undersea herd . And they match...at least each other... and we use them. They are by Brad Keeler and are a California pottery. I know nothing about California pottery except these lobsters can get pricey. I have stopped buying them and probably should have stopped way before this, I know that's what you are saying! What do you collect, not because it matches your decor , but because it matches your heart. Afterall, I'm a pink girl! But the red lobsters match.
