I opened the glass fronted cupboard doors so that you might see the everyday basics
The white set is Maxwell Williams
The platter on left is vintage English Ironstone
the one on the right is Meissen
Vintage Franciscan Ware in "Sprout"
and a random collection of mugs
Emma Bridgewater, Dunoon, and some vintage Hornsea.
Sandwich and tea cake plate and cup
a gift from Mother when she downsized to her condo
Such a handy set for an afternoon tea
I have other bone china cups and saucers in the dining room cupboards
The entertaining china...
Royal Albert Lavender Rose
as chosen for us by Mr HB's mother and her cousin
back in 1974
Platters teapots and a punch bowl
hiding behind closed doors waiting...
for a party
Family events, celebrations, buffets, pot lucks, and holidays
all see this china make an entrance
I have only ever broken one piece
it was a large platter
which to replace was over $200
White china is so versatile
styles can be mixed and matched
I am finding the white everyday pieces to be such a great basic
and they have made their way into the dining room more often than the entertaining china has recently!
Do you have a set for everyday and special occasions?
Or do you have one set for both?
What colour/pattern/style do you prefer?
