Sometimes I feel so lucky when I find a big stash of pretty dishes for a great price. But it really is a numbers game. The more you make the rounds, the more likely you are to get the deals. I even vary the time of day or week that I visit a place. You never know what will turn up. This time it was this beautiful blue Myott English china.
I love all the curves and flourishes.
A number of dings are to be expected with this many pieces, but the far majority of this set was in fine condition.
There were two tureens, and a large platter and vegetable bowl as well.
I adore all the extra detail that old English china often has.
Even a sauce pitcher and tray!
Blue and white is so crisp and cool looking for the warm months ahead!
I found this old ironstone bowl in the same market on the same day. Something tells me that they may have been from the same collector.
The bowl has a lovely pale blue design on the angular rim.
Sometimes my shots are fuzzy, but this time it's the maker's mark that is out of focus! Pretty anyway.
Time for a little summer farmhouse vibe. . . .
I hope your week is off to a wonderful start!
I'll be off inventing tablescapes in blue!
