Today's tea cup and saucer features a lovely floral design. The iris is pink with a little touch of lavender and pale green stems.
I love the silver trim. I believe these are the only ones I have with a silver trim.
These dishes once belonged to my mom's oldest sister, so they have a special place in my heart.
The manufacturer is Universal Cambridge, Camwood Ivory. I believe they were in business from the 1930s-1950s.
The picture below shows some of the dishes I have in this pattern. Not shown are the dinner plates, the smaller plates, dessert bowls and soup bowls. The only item missing is the tea pot/coffee pot.
Finally, one of my rose bushes decided to bloom. I'm so excited.
I really enjoy photographing flowers, especially ones I grow.
And the soul of the rose went into my blood,
As the music clash'd in the hall;And long by the garden lake I stood,
For I heard your rivulet fall
From the lake to the meadow and on to the wood,
Our wood, that is dearer than all;
--Excerpt from "Maud" by Alfred, Lord Tennyson (1809-1892)
