Oh, Deer!

Another one of my obsessions/collections: the deer. Mostly California pottery, but I'm not picky - I like all kinds. We finally got a lovely cabinet to house them a number of years ago. But not ALL of them are in there - some others are scattered about the house, including a collection of matte white pottery deer. And then the deer lamps are all over the place. Yep, like I said, I'm obsessed. And no - if I do ever decide to downsize at all- these will be staying right here, thank you very much.

I can't explain my obsessions, I don't even try anymore. I simply believe that these are beautiful. Bright, colorful, graceful - I never tire of looking at them. I have been collecting them for YEARS. ( I apologize again for the poor quality of my photos. I think you can at least get the gist of my collection!)
Deer me.

The deer are so lovely, and I like the fact they don't eat the roses like the type we collect around here! Love T

I love your deer collection!!! I only have a few deer myself... they're hard to find at thrift stores and when I see them at antique stores they are always overpriced. :(

These are lovely. Just started collecting vintage and love CA pottery. In your second picture you have a "set" of three lovely deer in the far right of the cabinet. What can you tell me about them? We just purchased the taller one and would now like to look for the other two. Thanks So Much, Sherron, Sacramento
