Bethany and Arthur Wood China

P8241879

My teacup and teapot today are two different patterns and companies, but I think they are pretty together.  I like the soft butter yellow background and pink roses on the teacups.

P8241877It is a lovely chintz floral pattern with gilded edges.  It is not vintage china and my four cups and saucers were purchased less than five years ago.

P8241880It is fine bone china, made in Staffordshire England.

P8241881 Next is the pretty teapot that I usually pair with these cups.  The color is very similar, with a different floral pattern.

P8241882It has a lovely shape with a pretty gilded handle and knob.  It was made in England by Arthur Wood.  

P8241883

I tend to think *all* chintz looks good together, but these two patterns are especially charming!

I love the soft yellow and delicate flowers. They certainly compliment each other nicely. Chintz is so beautiful new or vintage.
Thank you for sharing them with all of us.
Blessings, Pam

Very pretty! I must tell you that every time you post some new tea cups, it makes me want to run out to the closest antique store and start looking.
