  1. Oh dear. That's a lot of really nice dinnerware... :)
  2. Oh - the real hair kind of amps the disconcertion factor for me. Thank you for your information - I hadn't seen your post. Very interesting.
  3. Makes perfect sense! I feel the same - it's not on display. Thank you for your thoughts.
  4. Thank you so much for your time and effort. It tends to hook you when the answer isn't readily available doesn't it?! I too have spent lots of time and I tend to return to it occassionally but haven'...
  5. Does anyone know the name of this pattern?
  6. Anything I've been able to find seems to indicate that they were part of the 'Design Series" and were from the '80's. The clear bottom bowls and big hair era!
  7. Well done! They're great bowls.
  8. Alas the mystery remains. There's a creamer on EBay but it too is nameless. Thanks for doing some looking about it!
  9. Thank you! I have so much fun hunting for things.
  10. Thank you. I was glad I caught that view and decided to capture it.
  11. I believe it to be a regular size tea cup. It appears to be a fairly standard size, as opposed to smaller, when compared to any others I have. I would need to measure and do a little more research to ...
  12. Oh, Lee Sayer, what a lovely tale! I'm grateful to you for sharing it and am so pleased to have sparked a pleasant memory.

  16. Thank you for your thoughts, tclp. I appreciate it and will spend more time researching both the originals and the copy. I'm really enjoying the learning element of vintage and antique treasures.
  17. You're absolutely correct - my mistake! I'm grateful for you pointing it out and have fixed it.
  18. Hello, Yes, that is the case. The figures are raised. It's an interesting effect and I'd love to know more about them. Cheers.
  19. Thank you. That's actually where I started with my research and I believe you're correct!

  26. So true and so very valuable. My husband and daughter are both professional photographers and cameras tend to outnumber people in our home. You can imagine what it's like to try to keep up with the ph...
  27. Incredible.
  28. Or maybe it's a tablecloth?
  29. Fabulous!
  30. Hi Melissa. I've got 6 each of dinner plates, bread & butter plates, berry bowls and cups with saucers. I also found one other squarish plate that is the same pattern but a different colour. It reall...
