These sets belonged to my mother-in-law. The glamis thistle totally knocked out my Hubby. With it's sharp rigid handle, it's uncomplicated design and the different motif, this was by far his favourite. Nicka liked it too. But then she liked several and was struggling to decide.
However it was this Colclough with its gleaming gold and dainty yellow flowers that sealed first place in her books. I really like it too. But - it's not my fav.
If you're reading Nicka, I hope you recognise the lovely fine bone china badger plate behind the cup. You know the one; you collected several on your travels in England. I couldn't resist popping it in the background because the colours worked so well with the sunny yellow and golds.
