20161018_125830

This picture was taken at the McGuire’s Vintage Tea Room in Amesbury, England. I have this china pattern. This is the coffee pot that goes with my set. The tea room also had the standard tea pot (which I have), the smaller single serving tea pot, the sugar bowl, soup plate, and dinner plate (I also have this one). If I could have figured out how to get them back here without them breaking, I would have tried to purchase them from the tea room.  I was extremely ecstatic to see this!
