China close up

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!

Marked as Kahla Foreign on the underside

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....

  7. Hi Jenny ... thanks for the coffee set information ... I hope you don't mind but I've given you a mention on my blog ... it is a tag thing but if you don't want to play don't worry, it's the first time I've been tagged and it is time consuming ... I won't be in the least offended if you don't want to ... Bee xx

    PS the post is called eleven
