Old Country Roses

Years ago I gave my mother in love a Tea service of Old Country Roses.  I recently inherited them and they have made it back to my table.  It seems fitting to share for a Spring time table.




Although the Tea pot is made in Indonesia, the tea cups are Made in England.



The Old Country Roses pattern blends well with the Rembrandt China that was also inherited.  



May your days be filled with Sunshine and Red Roses.

So beautiful and what treasured memories and love they hold. Perfect to use in the Spring, or anytime throughout the year.

Many years ago I gave my mother a set of China dishes, which she used for years. I also inherited them and now enjoy them daily.

Big hug,

I love your teapot. I never see that one around here and it is the perfect match to the teacups. OCR is such a beautiful pattern and the colours are lovely for any time of year including springtime. I had started my mother on a set of china years ago and it came back to me. That is how I ended up with so many pieces of Lavender Rose. Royal Albert makes gorgeous china. Very pretty tea setting, Jocelyn. Thank you for joining me for tea today.

Blessings,
Sandi

Old Country Roses is such a classic pattern that will never go out of style. It coordinates nicely with your Rembrandt. So special to inherit teaware from family.
