Nothing to do with the Chinese elections!
Just a close up of the set of china that is on my kitchen shelves - this is one of the part sets that I have 'moved on' in the past (no lid or saucers but found a welcoming home). Team up with a suitable tablecloth and you're away with the retro fairies!
As with ironing I do like washing up when it is nice older stuff - not so keen otherwise!

The three sets of this that I have owned were all bought from local charity shops so I assume that it is not a great rarity and not a retirement investment piece!! Nice to drink tea out of though (though strictly speaking a coffee set!)
Thank you kindly for kind comments and supportive words....extra busy for the next few weeks but I easily get side lined when someone asks for a bit more detail about something...'tis a nice distraction to have....
