One of my favorite things about the home that I love are Asian, or Oriental china, the patterns are always so beautiful and serene, all I've seen. Here I want to share with you this set of dishes for 8 I bought in theMacy's Cellar, around 28 or 29 years ago on one of my visits to my parents. The combination is like this, the dinner plate with the gold simbol in the middle, than the salad plate and the soup bowl with a lid...the blue and white is hand decorated. The chargers I used are my gold glass Turkish ones that somehow with the Oriental plates on top it has a look of a Chinese fan!
The little tea set with a family in it dates since first WWI...it's an antique, it's bone china you can see through and weights almost nothing. It has 2 tea pots, one big and a small one and a sugar bowl, along with 8 cups and saucers. I fell totally in love with it when I saw it in an antique shop I paid $225...I didn't care, but the lady gave it to me for $25 less... I love it!
The figure of the man fishing and the Foo Dog, I bought in China Town in NY, around the same time. Lastly, the tablecloth is the one I embroidered for C'mas years ago, I liked that it's red and couldn't find anything else around the house and so it turned Oriental all of a sudden!
I hope you like it like I do and if you visit, I thank you in advance, it's always an honor to receive you. Wishing a wonderful TBNOTP and thank you so much to Susan for the chance to be around such talented people!
