While in Vermont last month I stopped at a little antique store in the town I grew up in. I found some pretty white and brown transferware plates. I believe they are from the aesthetic period.l The maker is Henry Alcock and Co. and the pattern is Lynton. They were 25% of the marked price which made me very happy. I also bought blue transferware plates that I will show you at a later date.
This gorgeous ecru crocheted tablecloth was also purchased the same day at a small second hand store in a nearby town. I hurried to the table it was on to see what the price was...looked and looked, but couldn't find one. My sister, Judy, found the owner and asked what the price was...she said $20...my heart was beating really fast as I thought it would be at least 5x higher...I had the nerve to ask if she would be willing to take $15 for it...she thought for a minute and said "yes, I got this in a box with lots of other things. I hurried and paid for it and left before she could change her mind on the price! I hate to think of how many hours someone put into crocheting it, many, many more than $15 worth. I like to think it now has a good home!
I used woven chargers topped with Wedgwood Hedge Rose plain white plates, then the Lynton luncheon plate.
The flatware is my trusty champagne Madeline from World Market. They go with just about anything.
I used a solid brown linen hemstitched napkins with a plain brown napkin ring.
The glassware is Noritake Provincial in brown.
The centerpiece is a simple cream colored pitcher with Russian Sage...that is really past it's prime and a couple of candlesticks.
I really appreciate you taking the time to visit today...thank you!
