What a lovely way to celebrate Spring, combined with a touch of Easter. Another Spring theme teaset from my sister’s collectables.
Royal Worcester – Arcadia. Tiny petite pastel flowers. Accompanied by my handmade salted encrusted eggs –tutorial found here.
Since 1751, Royal Worcester has produced top quality china. It is said to be one of the few enterprises where the traditional craftsmanship of the eighteenth century still survives.
This teaset is just adorable and I love the teapot.
It even has flowers on top of the lid. With gold trims around the edge of the plates and cups.
Dr. John Wall, a gifted surgeon and local pharmacist stumbled upon a formula for “soft paste” porcelain. The paste formula was unique for its time and received much attention, as it did not crack when exposed to boiling water. With this industry-changing formula in hand, Wall and his associate secured local financial backing and formed Worcester – Tonkin, a porcelain studio on the banks of the river Severn in Worcester, England.
Tutorial to make these eggs can be found here. Take a look they’re so fun and easy to make!
Enjoy your tea time friends,
