Welcome to my first Magpie Monday! I'm linking up with Missie Lizzie of Me and My Shadow who started Magpie Monday! I hope you'll pop over to her blog and see all the other link ups and 'Magpie finds'
So here is my Magpie find bought today in Scope charity shop
A beautiful little teaset! 6 perfect cups and saucers and a sugar bowl!
All for a fabulous £4!
And then I turned them over and looked at the bottom finding this...
I may be wrong but this looks like they were made in 1850! Made by Foley Fine China this design is called 'Ming Rose' and I have done a little research and found 1 cup and saucer on ebay selling for £19.50!
This lovely design is inside the cups and the sugar bowl!
I can't wait to have my own home to display them in and maybe have a tea party in aid of Scope who helps people like my friend Anna who has Cerebral Palsy :-)
I wouldn't have looked twice at this set or maybe thought it was pretty but nothing more if I hadn't been reading my friend Karen's blog and all the lovely vintage bargains she finds! Thanks for the Inspiration Karen!
I hope you think my 'Magpie find' is as wonderful as I do! Hope to see you again soon
