I thought I'd share again my collection
of Queen Victoria wares which
I recently decided to move over to my kitchen
open armoire shelving.  The teapot on the
right on the stand above is a commemorative
jackfield type pottery one.  And then
another below with the sliding lid:

 Over the winter and early this year, I started collecting some Commemorative Queen Victoria spoons, a pair of sugar tongs and a couple commemorative pins which I love. The pin on the right shows 4 generations:  from Queen Victoria to the little girl,  Princess Mary:

A lady in Canada who I was communicating with told me about this book which is very interesting:

I found mine very inexpensively on ebay.

I was wanting just one cup and saucer for each Royal couple in the  succession of Kings and Queens that followed Queen Victoria.
After she died her son Edward VII became King and then his son George V (remember in the Downton Abbey movie)
then Edward VIII (abdicted) and followed by George VI  before Queen Elizabeth.

This week might be a wonderful time to experience
 an Afternoon Tea too!  Queen Victoria
certainly contributed to the advancement of 
teatime.  You will find many recipes on my site to
bake and prepare food items for an Afternoon Tea.

I love when I get a bit of history when I read a post. You have a wonderful collection. I've had a few pieces. I've always wanted to see some of the ROYALS pottery set on a table of tartans...wouldn't that just be they would say. Thanks for the info, hugs, Sandi

That is a lovely collection. I have a book of letters from Victoria. I found it at our library used bookstore.

Incredible collection, and how wonderful for you to find so many
items. Great to look at on this hot afternoon, and I still had
a cup of hot tea.

I so enjoyed seeing your Queen Victoria items. Hopefully some year again I can see them in person.
I just watched your you tube of the tour of your garden also. I'm sure your garden is fabulous this year.

I must get back to blogging

Bernideen, I love seeing all your tea things, especially because you present them in a themed way that pulls everything together. I am so longing to go out for afternoon tea as soon as possible! But for now ... at home, so posting my latest afternoon tea savory this Thursday.
