Continuing from last week’s Bunnies in Wonderland tablescape in PAM’s breakfast room, our second table was one of elegant linens and place settings.
When PAM pulled out this table-cloth, I swooned. It was a private, silent swoon. I don’t think she knew. HBD bought PAM this table-cloth and matching napkins years ago at a local department store that’s now closed.
PAM brought out my great aunt’s china,
Ivory China Meito China.
Written below but out of camera view the stamp reads made in occupied Japan.
Remember this china from the Vintage Tray Scape at her house last year? I love the cups and saucers in this pattern!
To the table, PAM brought her favorite red glass ware (Jamestown Ruby Fostoria),
and crochet-edged embroidered cloth napkins.
Then, we gathered a few of her red accessories.
For a tea-pot platform, I turned her red bowl upside-down.
The tea-pot and sugar bowl are not a matching set, but the red toille print is one PAM loves. My grandmother found the tea-pot at an antique store. She bought it because she liked it, not for any other reason. The under side inscription “Enoch Woods, English Scenery, Woods Ware, Enoch 1784, Ralph 1750, Wood & Sons, England” (whew!) makes little sense to us, but maybe you know something about it. (That’s only part of the inscription.)
PAM found the sugar bowl at an antique store, as well. Just like her mother, she bought it because she liked it. Its inscription reads “Bountiful, Myott, England, Fine Staffordshire Ware”. Does that tell you anything? Please share if it does.
When PAM unrolled the silverware pouch and pulled out these relish forks, I liked seeing all the various shapes and styles lined in a row.
The final additions were tall candle sticks from PAM’s breakfast room china cabinet.
Just beyond the far table edge, you can see what’s left of PAM’s poinsettia plant from Christmas.
I know some people are able to keep them alive from year to year, but I don’t have much luck with that. Do you?
I’m sharing at Tablescape Thursday.
