I went to visit my parents for the weekend. While I was there I was poking around in all the old stuff that mum hauls around with her wherever she goes. Since I was a kid I have always loved this china. This was my great great grandparents wedding service from 1890. It's made in England by Foley. Mum has the entire set, 6 dinner plates, side plates, bowls etc.(except for a couple of missing cups.) The flowers are snowdrops. It's very thin bone china and very small in size compared to what we would use these days. Isn't it pretty?
