I found the plate, cup & saucer, and small dish in opshops. The smallest dish and little vase belonged to my stepmother, who left them to me in her will along with a lot of other ornaments.

What beautiful, dainty pieces. I love your collections, everything is so pretty I'd be scared to use it! And that chest of drawers below is really lovely. I hope to gather some nice old pieces like that in the years to come.

Oh that teacup and the square plate are lovely...as are the other pieces. How fragile and beautiful!

Happy New Year, Gina!
Those pieces are exquisite.

Thank you ladies! Shell, I try to use as much of my china and linen as possible - not for everyday use, but when we have visitors, even just one friend for a cuppa. I love to play the part of Hyacinth Bucket - lol! Not really, she is over the top, but I do like to put a pretty cloth on our old laminex kitchen table, and some biscuits on a nice plate.

I love your collection of crinoline lady chinaware.
So much so that I have started looking out for them.
