My aunt was given my grandmothers good dishes when she passed in 1993. They were carefully wrapped in newspaper, put in several boxes, and stored in a dark dry environment. We discovered them while cleaning this summer and I have been tasked with finding a new home for them. The dishes are not all flow blue, but are all blue and white. I have done some research and I think I have identified six flow blue patterns. Descriptions and photos below. I know they are not as valuable as they were in 1993, but there are some very nice pieces.
I also have pieces marked: Bristol - Crown Ducal England; Watteau - Doulton Burslem, England; Homer Laughlin, USA; Wedgwood, England, and more. If you are looking for something that is white and blue, let me know - I still have boxes to go through!

I have some things that I am not sure about. Two bowls (9) that say ASTORIA semi-porcelain, New Wharf Pottery, England. A gravy boat (8.5 long) that says LOUISE semi-porcelain, New Wharf Pottery, England. And 1 b+b plate that says TOURAINE Henry Alcock, England, and a saucer that says TOURAINE Stanley Pottery Co., England. The patterns are similar but not identical. Any information is appreciated.
