Finds: vintage tea set

Homegirl London finds an adorable tea set for Mother’s Day.  The New Country 3 Piece Tea Set includes a teapot, covered sugar bowl and creamer which costs £130 and you can also buy complementary teacups and saucers for £18 in a boxed gift set.  The lovely vintage style pattern features delicate roses set against a vibrant pink backdrop with a touch of gold on the rim to give a lustrous finish.  The beautiful design has been rendered in fine bone china.  Made by Royal Albert, part of the Royal Doulton collection – the classic quintessential British tableware and ceramics brand which dates back to 1815.  You can buy from uk.wwrd.com.  This full tea set would make a perfect gift for your mum and you could always deliver it in person and surprise her with a delicious cream tea – scones, strawberry jam and clotted cream.  Mother’s Day is on 10 March 2013 so order now.  Credits: text by Homegirl London, images courtesy of Royal Albert, special thanks to Hena Husain.
