English Harvest......

Welcome to Friday Show & Tell hosted by

This week is my first week back sharing since our move. I am happy to be back sharing with you, so without further Ado.

This Spring my Grandmother handed down her china dishes to me. I have the whole set of dinner plates, small plates, dessert bowls, cups, saucers, salt & pepper shakers,creamer and sugar bowl enough for a party of 8. I am so excited to use them this coming Thanksgiving.

I remember my Grandma using these dishes as a child and am so honored to use them in my home.... if they hold up, I can pass them down to my children if they want them.

These are cups and saucers made by Wedgwood in 1965.

The pattern is called English Harvest. The bottom of the saucer is stamped Enoch Wedgwood (Tunstall) LTD. England. The cup is stamped Made in England.
This is a full sized cup and saucer. The cup measures 2 3/4 inches tall and 3 1/4 across the top excluding the handle. The saucer measures 5 1/2 inches across

We enjoyed a little Fall dessert with these dishes the other night. I just love the Harvest feel of them. Thank you for stopping by our little place. Have a happy week ahead !!!
