Vintage Pink Tea Set

Over the last couple of weeks, I have been to a auction and a flea market and picked up some great items.
At the flea market there was a lady with a great booth. She had a cute tea set in mint condition and the price was only $30. She told me they had belonged to her, that she was downsizing because her husband was ill and had taken them out of her china cabinet that morning.
When I went to pay she only charged me $25 and I told her not to worry they were going to a good home where they would be loved.
Nothing better than pink roses on a tea set!

The teapot, creamer and sugar all in perfect condition

If I would of seen this creamer by itself I would of bought it since I collect creamers and pitchers. Now it makes me wonder where the mates are to all my creamers!

Delicate pink roses

Even the back of the tea pot has pink roses

They have a Bavarian mark on the bottom


Hope you enjoyed seeing the tea set. I think I will be enjoying it for a long time to come.
