This plate and cup and saucer are at least 132 years old.
They are part of a set of dishes given to my husband's great grandfather and his
wife for a wedding gift on December 31, 1879.
This china must have been used alot as the plate's design is worn off in spots.
There aren't any markings at all on the backs of the dishes.
I'm not sure what the pattern of rose, blue and green represents.
I have never used these dishes as they are too old and fragile so
they are on display in a glass fronted cupboard.
If anyone knows anything about this pattern I'd appreciate it if you would let me know.
For my afternoon tea I chose this comfortable mug.
Good old jadite.
I have 3 of these mugs and apparently they were used when my mother-in-law
took a big dinner meal to the workers in the hayfield.
That makes me smile.
What makes you smile?
Thanks for joining me for
