Three lovely ladies.

Today I would like to share with you, three different crinoline lady designs.
Recently I bought set of 6 plates in very good condition.
It was a bit of a random purchase apart from the fact that I just loved them on sight.

I have no cups and saucers to go with them but they were just so pretty I could not leave them in the shop.

Hanley England
Royal Falcon Ware
Durability stamped across the flag
Three of the plates are printed in gold
Three of the plates are stamped in red and blue
Seems strange to me.
What do you think?
This is a lovely tea cosy I bought a month or so ago.
She is sitting over a
Royal Doulton
Brambly Hedge teapot

This lovely little jam or sugar bowl is called
Lilac Time
Swinnerton's England
Hampton or Upton England
and then overstamped
Australia Design
Application No
Made in England
Such a lot of markings for such a little piece.

Empire England
The entire setting sitting on
Dutch Oak Sideboard
Everything is crammed into this house
It's a bit like a furniture storage facility
Hopefully won't be here too much longer......
Here's the setting in pink hues...
Just playing with my new mobile phone.
