Vintage finds…

It occurred to me that I haven’t done a vintage finds post for a while, so since it’s jubilee year I thought I’d show you some patriotic tableware I picked up a couple of weeks ago.


A coronation cup and saucer from 1953. I’m not ashamed to say that I really like the Queen!


And a silver jubilee trio from 1935 with images of George 5th and Queen Mary.

I love this sort of commemorative ware, especially the cheaper mass-produced things – patriotism for everyone!

I picked them both up in a vintage shop so they weren’t cheap but I’m keeping an eye out in charity shops. I think this might be the start of a brand new collection!
