Seeing Stars

I found this lovely little teaset in a charity shop recently.  I was really taken by the white and gold design.



The thin gold lines make a triangular pattern which makes the outline of a star shape.  This is echoed by the circle of stars around it.


The central scrolly pattern is not just on the saucer and side plate, but also inside the cup.



The markings don’t give much away, but if anyone knows anything about this little set I would love to know more.



I really love this pattern – would look wonderful on a Christmas table.

Love, Liz

This cup and saucer have a regal look....would be fun to decorate a table with metallics and these dishes.

What a fabulous find. I love the stars and the center emblem almost looks like a snowflake. There are so many uses for this.

Lovely!
