Love that Chirp

I have a few tea settings of my grandmas that are silver birch.

No real want or desire for actual china though

Mine is the blue garland by Haviland.
The german made not the china.

I would love the teapot if anybody wants to sell.

Mine was Johnson Bros Provincial (smooth edge)...and it was discontinued three weeks before our wedding. So, we received only four place settings. Still breaks my heart. I love it to this day, as it reminds me of the time I spent in Alsace.

obsidian - I like yours too. Great vintage style, and a sweet story


My dad had excellent style he used to own a Klint. We sold it to a museum as NZ humidity damaged it quite badly.

We sold many of his things when he got to old to enjoy them. I wish we still had the Klint it was creepy but good creepy.

I never had "fine" bone china... but I used these for "special" days.. now I use them everyday.... Lenox Poppies on Blue

it's Lenox' "stoneware" type.. not cheap to replace now that it's "retired",, but I love it... and figured

20 years ago, Sweet Leilani from Noritake. Click HERE to see what it looks like.

We have never used it as we lost a chunk of it 6 months after we got married, in the Northridge earthquake. I looked into replacing the missing pieces shortly thereafter but never did, and now I'm unsure if I should still attempt to do so or just get rid of what I have. The pattern isn't my style now or colors (and hasn't been for a long time), and I am not typically sentimental, but I can't seem to bear the thought of getting rid of it. I would like to start using china for our formal dinners, so I'd better decide what to do; either replace the missing pieces and use it or get a entirely new set!

jennifercw - That is a really cool pattern! I love it.

Thanks! *Most* of the flowery china patterns are not my thing, so I'm pretty happy to have something a little different.

Oooo, your Royal Doulton would look interesting paired with my Grecian Gold I think!

I will inherit my mom's one day. I don't use China, but hers is beautiful and we love building the collection along with serving pieces and accessories. She has some gorgeous teapots to match.
It is Royal Albert Old Country Roses, as shown above.

Peal --- that is ours too!! Squirewood by Noritake. Got married in 1994 so we were looking probably the same time you were. Funny thing, when we were looking at houses in TN two of the four houses had that pattern too!!

LOL. My everyday "china" is Corelle. Hot Dots. I love it and have service for 12.



I have a set of China that was my grandmother's that I love, just for the sentimental memories. She decided to get rid of it and I bought it from her. It's just some pattern from Sears, but it has tiny green flowers with yellow centers and silver trim. Can't find a pic anywhere, and it's in storage. But it's kind of classic looking.

I've loved looking through this thread and looking at all the pretty china!

All of mine began out inherited (I'm not married but still working on my china). I have a full set of Royal Worsceter Woodland that I inherited. I have one place setting of Wedgwood Amherst, and for Christmas I have Lenox Winter Greetings.
