I have used these blue and white beauties in several posts and will use them MANY more times, I am sure.
They are RIDGWAY, STAFFORDHIRE, ENGLAND and the pattern is OLD ENGLISH BOUQUET.
Mr. Sweet bought them for me at a flea market for less that $50.00 for the set, service for 8.
Altho they are no longer in production, I have been able to find a few pieces on Ebay and the Replacement place.
I would really like to add more serving dishes to the set...sure would be great to pass along to one of the granddaughters at some point.
The beautiful silver tray that I am using as a charger at this setting was given to me by BEAUTIFUL DAUGHTER. She brought it to me from one of her trips to Mexico.
The flatware is by ONIDEA but I have had it so long, I don't remember the pattern name.
The stemware is from GOODWILL.
The large and small tureens came from GOODWILL and I could not believe that anyone would give them away.
They are in excellent condition and the markings on the bottom: a crown with LILY above it, W. ADAMS & SON, England and semi-porcelain.
The large one cost $4.95 and the small was $3.95. AMAZING !! I was thrilled to pieces that the blues of the tureens matched so well with my dishes.
Almost everyone on the planet knows that these little white, ceramic, salt and pepper birds flew here from TARGET. Some might remember that mine are named BONNIE and CLYDE....:>) What I have really enjoyed about having these little cuties is the fact that they look fabulous with ANY type table setting.
These glass sugar and creamer belonged to my mom...She bought them in the 40's in Dallas. I don't know anything about glass so I don't know if these are pressed or cut glass...??
