Vintage Richelieu

Hello everyone,

I can never resist a pretty piece of china!  Anything pink or purple always catches my eye and I love to mix and match them for a unique tablescape.


Today I am sharing with you a Royal Doulton Richelieu plate from England.  The pattern is H4957. What makes this piece so special are the hand painted daisies with a soft lavender background.  I also love the elegant gold scrolls and leaves.


It has such a pretty backstamp.


I've paired it with a vintage lusterware teacup and saucer from Japan.  Another wonderful find with a footed base!


The kettle is on and I will be sipping an enchanted white rose blend.


I always look forward to tea time and trying different teas, but somehow I tend to keep going back to my favorite white rose.    


Perfect for a spot of tea on a cold day.


With all the snow we have received I find myself dreaming about springtime.

Thank you for enjoying a cuppa tea with me  :-)

How lovely Donna! I love footed teacups, and that's a lovely Royal Doulton plate. My best dishes are Royal Doulton! Thanks so much for linking to Tuesday Cuppa Tea!

Your teacup and the plate are both such a pretty, feminine pattern. I would love sipping tea at your table. The white rose tea sounds delicious and one that I've never heard of or tried.
