Hugh’s Week 6 Photo Challenge is to show something unused. The most ‘photogenic’ idea that I could come up with was to delve into our china cabinet where we store glasses and china passed down from our parents. We might use them someday, but we hold onto them primarily for sentimental reasons. I chose a platter with an engraving by William Henry Bartlett, showing an 1842 Halifax Harbour landscape. The platter is probably intended for a family roast, an unlikely use in this home of two, including one vegetarian (me). Nevertheless, I do enjoy this type of engraving, showing several different scenes in one picture. Unfortunately the details are very small.
The British artist, William Henry Bartlett, lived from 1809 to 1854. He travelled and made drawings throughout Britain, in Canada, the United States, the Balkans and the Middle East.
