French Blue


I'm in the wrong place to be always on the lookout for French antiques, but once in a while something charming turns up. I found a small flow blue French bowl in my forays this week, and was excessively overjoyed at the discovery.



I'm displaying it here with a tiny English butter pat that I found a while ago.




What a romantic and delightful scene for such a little plate!













The gold details are still intact on the French porcelain. So delicate and wonderful!







A small Limoges Eiffel tower completes the scene.











Merci beaucoup for stopping by! I hope you enjoyed this petite taste of  Francais Bleus! I hope your weekend is wonderful!

Ciao! for now!
Jacqueline

  1. You know I love flow blue! What a pretty plate. I love the butter pat too. I have a green and white transferware butter pat called Strawberry Hill. Isn't that a charming name? Pamela

  2. Flow Blue I can enjoy immensely ... the beauty of the china is amazing. The pat just sets it off beautifully, Jacqueline.

  6. I thoroughly enjoyed browsing through some of your blog. I adore old collectibles and paint chipped side tables and chairs, old jars, etc.

    And great photo taking:)
