Pretty In Red!





For the last tea day in February,
I've pulled out an old favorite, some red transferware.


Transferware

My Granny called these luncheon plates.
Victorian Trading Company calls them tea and scone sets.
Tea and toast sounds good to me!

Is Spring around the corner?
I hope so!

Wishing you well, much joy and a lovely cup of tea!

Love red transferware...there is always something so cheerful about it. We had a dusting of snow, but spring is definitely creeping closer! Thanks so much for linking to Tuesday Cupps Tea!

I learned to call small plates like that luncheon plates too! Sheesh, am I that old?

Some of the tea ladies call them toast and tea sets. Doesn't matter, it just means there's room for something to eat beside the tea cup and with me, it would be sweet.
I've not seen a red transferware set, very nice.
I hope spring is around the corner too Snap, a small corner.

What a great serving plate. So pretty and very practical! Spring is probably on your doorstep, but not on mine.

The red tea set surely does look Victorian...in flavour anyway. And the flowers you have chosen to go with it are perfect.

Ruth Kelly said...

Your flower sure makes me dream of spring. I have not heard of transfer ware.

Beth Laverty said...

What a lovely way to have tea and toast or tea and scones or even a bit of lunch! Thanks for sharing.

What a lovely tea cup and plate! I love the shape of the saucer and the color and pattern! (hoping spring will be here soon, but it is so cold!)

I love red transferware, and that tea and scone plate. Victorian Trading Company has some great items. Thanks for stopping by my blog Snap. Oh, and I love the baby elephant and giraffe from your previous post. 6'6" at birth?? wow.
