Background Information

Eileen Rose Busby, a writer and antiques dealer who taught an antiques and collectibles course at a San Diego, California community college, fell in love with Chintz while living in Suffolk, England. She and her husband Richard had purchased a 16th-century thatched roof cottage on the English countryside that was furnished, including with some pieces of Chintz. 


While living there for a decade, they attended English antiques shows and frequented flea markets, searching for more pieces. During her travels, she has done extensive research on English pottery, ceramics, chintz and RoyalWinton. She also has attended chintz shows all over the U.S. After they returned to the states, Busby and her late husband led antiques tours to England until 2000 -- to the Newark Antiques Faire, Ardingly, Shepton-Mallet Internat'l Antiques Faire and others -- in search of Chintz and Cottage Ware. A bonus to "Royal Winton Chintz and Pastel Ware" is that Busby, a recognized historian when it comes to Royal Winton, includes interviews with people who once lived in the potteries and whose parents helped design and name early patterns.

Busby wrote numerous magazine and newspaper articles on the subject. She was featured in the Antiques Roadshow Insider. Her book, "Royal Winton Chintz and Pastel Ware," covers Grimwade/Royal Winton patterns and pieces starting from the 19th Century to today.

She and her daughter Cordelia Mendoza, an antique consultant, co-authored "Decorating With Chintz," due out in 2014.
