We are both great lovers of H&A and eagerly await it drop­ping through the le$er­box. We share a pas­sion for an­tiques and col­lecta­bles and, in par­tic­u­lar, a range of Beswick po$ery called Tit Wil­low. This pa$ern was de­signed by Al­bert Hal­lam in 1962 and was pro­duced un­til 1966. There were 18 items in the range, all in a gloss #nish and, ac­cord­ing to ex­perts, is the only ex­am­ple of a re­al­is­tic bird be­ing used as part of a de­sign used in table­ware. We have vis­ited count­less an­tiques shops, trawled eBay and #nally dis­cov­ered ‘the holy grail’ – a cov­ered jar that had eluded us for years. This ad­di­tion com­pletes the set. We have en­joyed the search and are now en­joy­ing the beau­ti­ful china. Charles and Caro­line Rossin, via email

I look for­ward to it ar­riv­ing through my door ev­ery month. Sheila Lane, Hal­stead
