|I'm going to display some of my English Red transferware dishes here, in Alejandro's grandfather's English buffet.. my Mil gave us to take care. I can enjoy this vignette, until I get bored, as I'm often changing things around in this house.|
I am totally excited! Last Friday I got I call from the European Antique Shop and the nice sales lady explained that containers came from Europe and they had a complete "tea set" for twelve in English Transferware, I had been asking them, sooo many times, I can't even count!..in fact I have a friend who's won me over twice in buying it..but that's a thing of the past, lol! Some pieces are "Staffordshire" and some are "Wedgwood."
Today I finally went and brought the dishes home with me.. 4/EVER AND EVER!! Here she is, my new toy, which I know you will like it, as transferware you either like it or not, unless it's not your style, than again...mine sure is!! They also promised to bring me next time the dinner plates and soup plates, or bowls to complete the china. I'd love to have it for Christmas.
Here is a simple table for four, as I just wanted to show off and play with my new "doll"... with the cake plates, two teapots, two creamers a sugar bowl and teacups and saucers. This set is for twelve.
The Teapot is with the design of "The Port of New Castle", and the little creamer is, "Little Morton Hall, Cheshire" and the tray is, "The Port of New Castle" too. I love all the decoration sceneries in them!
Flowers are crawling in the spout, neck and lid of the teapot and the design is, "Scotney Castle Kent", Staffordshire.
There are two bowls as well..the other bigger one is in the buffet. Their design, or transfer is "Historical Ports of England."
This teapot is, "The Port of England", Wedgwood and the little creamer is "Port of Plymouth."
I placed the 8 of the cups and saucers, 8 cake plates, or salad plates and the big bowl in my antique buffet, as the set is for 12.. and I just might leave them here to enjoy them daily until I get bored.
Here are four cups and saucers more...aren't they so pretty?
The rest of the china in the buffet.
The tray design is "The Port of New Castle".
Salad plates are "Cambridge-Old England", teacups are "Hampton Court Palace-London", saucer and sugar bowl.
The European Antiques' shop owner, who lives in Holland, and shops all over Europe for his antiques specially, promised to send me the dinnerware to complete the set.
I am so happy because I love the pink/red one and great for fall and Christmas and for everything, just love it! I know most of you have it cause it is easier to get it in the USA, but here, not much of a chance, except I was lucky and asked for it specially. Alejandro just called it: The English Olimpics China..hahahaaa Alejandro, my hubby lived in London-England when he was single for almost two years, so he is very partial to anything in ceramics, or porcelain that's English, as you know he owned a Ceramic Co. up to four years ago, therefore, he likes my new dishes too.
Thank you lovely and kind friends for all your wonderful and generous comments you always leave me.
Thanking the gracious hostesses for having me each week at their fabulous links.
