At the center of the show today are some of my favorite pieces. English transfer ware! It's my small nod to the upcoming royal event of the new century. The small teapot is Royal Staffordshire by Wilkinson in the wheat pattern. And my little cow is Charlotte by Royal Crownford. How appropriate.
I'm usually not one to fuss with too many layers, but it just felt like it this time. So I have one more layer than usual, and lots of pattern and movement. Because the colors are quiet, we get a lot of detail without it being too busy.
Everything is laid in lacy vintage linen. Only the best will do for such an important occasion.
Vintage silver with the family monogram.
A Haviland Limoges pattern is at the base. Sometimes you get to be the star, and other times you're just the supporting actor. Next is a set of salad plates from Anthropologie, topped by lacy glass bowls.
The tureen is also English, of course, by John Maddock and Sons.
The airy details make it a good spring choice.
There is a very subtle blue in the flowers that I love.
My little transfer ware shakers are shaped like teacups with a bit of pastel color on top.
A cut work tablecloth drapes the table.
The details in the tablecloth almost become part of the place setting.
Glasses are assorted etched vintage stemware.
Each of the set of four salad plates is different.
Thanks so much for coming by for the show! I hope you enjoy all the festivities, if you're into that sort of thing. I have a friend who is taking off work to get up early for the wedding. I may still BE up for it, night owl that I am.
Ciao! for now!
