Red Winter Tea

After Christmas I love to display my red china, especially as we get close to Valentine's Day.  They are pieces that I have picked up through the years.  I had purposed not buy any more china, but when I recently came upon Royal Stafford Asiatic Pheasant, well, my resolve dissolved

.
Little by little I've purchased red dishes.  Cups and saucers, tea pot and a few dishes.


I bought this amazing teapot at Cracker Barrel many years ago.


I stopped in my tracks when I found Asiatic Pheasant.


There were only a few dinner plates, but with the pieces I already have, they make a lovely winter table.




On a trip to Georgia this summer I found this very cute creamer at Queen of Hearts Antiques in Alpharetta. 



A few of my Syracuse Strawberry Fields China on display on the hutch.


I'm ready to sit down and enjoy a cup of tea and brunch.  How about you??

I am swooning over your red transferware, Jocelyn! I love so many colours but the red/pink is my favourite. The red is perfect for Valentine's Day and your teapot is really sweet! Thank you for sharing with us and have a lovely day.

Blessings,
Sandi

A very nice collection of the red transferware, I knew as soon as I saw it that Sandi would be loving it.
It would be perfect for a Valentine's Day luncheon with friends and the pink crystal goes well with the red.

Love your red transfer ware. Transferware always sets such a pretty table although my favorite is blue . . . but at Christmas and at Valentine's, I dream of the red!

I enjoy seeing the red ware. I have blue and whites, but I have two red cup and saucers to break up all the blue. It works well.
