Grandma's Tea Set

I am still getting Christmas things out. The tree will be finished tomorrow. If your like me, you have to put away somethings to get your Christmas out. In the dining room I have a tea cup holder with 5 shelves my Mother had made for me by the Amish. I always put up my Gurley candles so there is some packing involved.

I had to move my Grandmothers Pink child's tea set.

It has the tea pot, creamer, sugar and 6 cups and saucers.

My Mother had forgot that her Mother had this until we were packing up my Grandparents house. I found them wrapped tightly and packed in a box in Grandma's bedroom. I don't remember her having them out, but when I look at pictures of the home they lived in till I was 6, she has them on the bookshelves next to the fireplace.

I love the delicate pink roses, there is no markings on the bottom. I do cherish the set dearly.
Have a Happy Pink Saturday!

These are so pretty! I have no idea of the maker- never seen this pattern before! I wonder if she found them in Alexanders?
Hope you get some snow! It is so cold now here! The snow hasn't melted up here.
Hugs- Tete
