Just look what Mr D found for me at the secondhand shop so very cute.....
the cup and saucer you can see was used regularly, the gold trim almost worn off
wonder how many cups of tea were served in this one mmmmmmmmmmm
side plate in immaculate condition I don't think it was ever used.
bottom of cup DUCHESS Bone China England SUMMER (so sorry for the bad photos used my phone camera)
so happy with my SUMMER trio - thanks Mr D for surprising me at work.
Almost forgot Mr D bought it for R6.00 Heloise
As a little girl (like most little girls would do) I use to LOVE playing dress up with my mom's old clothes. There were long dresses(from the'70's) short ones like this beauty (from the '50's and '60's) lots of very pointy high heel shoes and old hats.
is it not absolutely gorgeous
detail on the bodice
it will be an absolute sin to keep it in the cupboard so I have it hanging in my bedroom
very different but I like it. Thinking back maybe I should have kept all her vintage dresses, bad luck hey at least this one stayed with me, it reminds me of my Mom every time I admire it.
