Classic Silverware A Tea Lover's paradise...

Classic Silverware is a fabulous shop and one that I cannot pass by without stopping in for a visit.
Their collection of silver and bone china tea cups is amazing!

Peeking in the window is not as satisfying as popping inside for a lingering browse.
I'm going to take you inside with me...

You can easily see the charm of this shop.

If you are looking for a special gift or to add a new teacup to your collection this is definitely the place to be.

Mixing silver and china patterns is so popular right now...
for your table setting or a picnic set you might search their sale bins.

If you have a silver pattern and need some pieces they have a huge inventory.
We fortunately found six soup spoons in our Silvery Lace Rogers silver pattern here a few years ago.

Floral tea cups are my weakness...
how to choose just one?

I love a tea party...
taking tea in the afternoon and using a pretty cup and saucer is one of life's little luxuries.

Do you see something that you'd like to buy in this shop?

If you cannot visit in person you might like to browse their website.

I didn't buy anything on my visit but there's always next time!

I really love those candelabras.

I'm going to put the kettle on...
a hot cup of tea is calling my name.

Take care.


  1. Hello Leslie,

    Oh yes, we could be tempted by many things which we see here. The china is particularly pretty and one could easily mix and match several of the different designs together. So much more interesting than matching, as you say.

  2. It would be a great place to spend some time just browsing. I don't know if I would be as successful as you were in leaving without something tucked into a bag.

  3. Beautiful. It would be hard to leave without a teensy tiny piece of silver:).

  4. Oooh those are nice candelabras. Lovely shop, I like the blue and white plates.

  5. I see several things I already own!

  6. I would love to visit this shop . . . the silverware is calling me. Guess I will take a look at the web site . . . Lovely . . .

  7. What a lovely shop, such a dangerous place to go with so many wonderful things that I know would love to come home with me. You are right the candlesticks in the window are beautiful.

  8. This shop is new to me - time to head up Fort Street on a little expedition. I can't say that I'll have as much willpower as you did, though!

  9. A tea-lover's paradise indeed! Do you have a favourite brand for fine chinaware and silverware? Emily

  10. What a gorgeous looking shop. Shall have to add it to my "Places To Visit in Victoria" list in case I ever get back.

  11. What a lovely shop! Thank you for sharing it with us!

  12. Oh I could have fun in that shop! So many lovely things. And a cup of tea in the afternoon is always a pleasure!

  13. Oh how I would love to browse. You hit upon to of my weaknesses...silver and china tea cups. I love mixing patterns...I use my own, and two patterns passed from my mother.

  14. i love stores like that. always something pretty around the next corner. you live in such a beautiful town!

  15. This looks like a fabulous shop! I would be hard pressed to leave without something. I like the idea of vintage silver for picnics, and that sale bin looks tempting.

  16. I love to browse shops like this! I can't tell you, how many cups and saucers I have given away, or left behind in a move. In my Mum's day; she received them as shower gifts, and I ended up with them all. I use them as tea light candle holders outside, am very negligent; and yesterday had fourteen (and a glass table top) smashed to smithereens in the storm.
    I also have many Royal Doulton Melrose, and Minton Buckingham ,cups and saucers, that I know I'll never use.

  17. I saw many things I liked in that shop!! Since I read your post about your picnic, I've been on the hunt for mismatched silver and china!! Candelabras are a weakness of mine. More bang for the buck, so to speak with the candles. Afternoon tea is one of life's finer pleasures.
