I don't think there are many things I love more than vintage china - beautiful post! I particularly love the first cup and saucer pictured, the gilding is still in such beautiful condition and the design is stunning :-)

Take care,

Jem xXx

On a random note, doesn't Limoges roll beautifully off the tongue? Fantastic word! :-)

There is something very special about old teacups isn't there. Mother had a teacup with flower bouquest painted inside so you discovered the flowers as you drank your tea, Sweet! Check out my current giveaway - you might like to participate in it. Dismayed - 76 followers and nobody has taken part yet - what am I doing wrong?
