Teacup Tuesday

P7131675

The teapot and matching teacup are from my dinnerware service and are Wedgwood Queen’s Ware in the Edme pattern.  The other cup and saucer is made by Wood & Sons in their Toile de Jouy pattern. P7131676

The Queen’s Ware or cream ware is such a lovely neutral and mixes well with lots of china patterns.

I really like the texture and the pedestal base of this pattern.

P7131680The Wedgwood site has a lot of information on Queen’s Ware which got its name from Queen Charlotte wife of George III. 

P7131681

I’ve always loved toile fabric, so this cup by Wood & Sons is another favorite.

P7131682

This pattern was also made in pink and blue.

The Wedgwood is so elegant and graceful. The black adn white cup is really nice, also. I like them both - to have a set of that Wedgwood - ahhhh.

Oh I love the Toile de Jouy pattern. I don't think I have ever seen a china with that pattern, it's very special.
The Queen's Ware is always elegant and can be used for any occasion can't it? Just lovely....
Have a wonderful week.

How very lovely are all your tea things!! Several years ago I happened upon the Edme pattern in Goodwill---there on the shelf sat a perfect little setting for a breakfast tray: Cup, saucer, luncheon-sized plate, and egg cup.

I got it just for the elegance of it, and the lovely feel of the finish.

I sent it last year as a little gift to my blog-friend Maggie, who had written more exquisitely of the Perfect Egg, in all its glory, than any writer I'd ever read.

I can imagine your table set with all that Wedgwood---so very lovely in candlelight.

Just came by here from Marthas, I don't believe I have ever seen the black and white toile, it is quite lovely. I know what you mean about the white going with anything, I use beige and it mixes well.
I am amazed at your husbands talent

Don't you find the white tea pots and accessories are kind to the eye and are also the best choices for helping the more beautiful and flashy tea cups and place settings "show their stuff"?

I am a lover of toile and until this post did not know of this pattern, it is wonderful! Thank-you for inviting me to Teacup Tuesday!

Beautiful tea set! I especially love the toile set....Christine

These are lovely. I like white sets very much, but there is something so charming about the ring of dancing children and shepherd. Lovely pieces. Take care.

Jan said...

I love Toile, too! And these cups and saucers are just outstanding! I can see them sitting upon black placemats with toile napkins.
And the teapot is like frosting on the cake! Simple lines that do along so well with your teacups.
Have a great week and thanks for coming by to see me, too!
Hugs,
Jan

What elegant teawares you're sharing today! Love the Edme pattern ... it's always so regal looking, so it's no wonder it's called "queens" ware. And that toile teacup from Wood and Sons has such a fun toile print! Very unique!

Marilyn said...

Love just plain white quite often as they are so fun to mix with other things. The toile pattern is lovely too.

Martha's Favorites said...

Oh, I really love that white teapot, it's got such a pretty shape! I have several white teapots, as much as I like all kinds of color, the white ones are always the first thing that catch my eye.
