One of my favourite things to search for lately on ebay has been anything relating to caves and caverns. I've discovered a whole world of cavern-themed material culture. Like any tourist attraction, these caverns have produced all kinds of souvenirs from silver spoons and shot glasses to view-master reels and postcards. A lot of these items, while appealing in an odd kitchy kind of way, are really super tacky. But some of them are actually beautiful. Like this plate. There are a variety of plates like this out there, but when I found this one I had to get it. I am a little worried that this may turn into an actual collection that I can't really afford and don't have space for, so hopefully I can exercise some restraint and keep it at just the one. But really, a collection of cavern-themed china!? Wouldn't that be amazing!
