British Finds And More

On Monday May the 20th its Victoria Day here in British Columbia, Canada so I thought I would post some British items I have found.

This lovely cup and saucer is by Alfred Meakin of England.  The only thing I could find the pattern being called was Bird and Flower.  If you know the pattern name I would love to know what it is.  I found the teabag holder at a local secondhand store, I've never seen one like this so I had to buy it.

Plates of the Royal Family
From left to right

King George the 5th and Queen Mary 1910 - 1936.
King Edward the 8th January 20th 1936 to December 11th 1936 when he abdicated to marry Wallis Simpson.
King George the 6th and Queen Elizabeth 1936 - 1952.
Queen Elizabeth the 2nd and Prince Phillip 1952 to present.

The first picture is postcards of Queen Elizabeth the 2nd and her family.
The second picture is of a biscuit tin of Trafalgar Square and in front is a toy model of a double decker bus, Harrods delivery truck and a mini.
I found the photo of King George the 6st and Queen Elizabeth on tour in Vancouver, British Columbia May 24th 1939 in an old album I found in a local secondhand store.
I was at a flea market when I found this tray of Queen Elizabeth the 2nd.  The vendor who I bought it off of is one of my favourites to barter with.

This paperweight was a garage sale find.  It does have a sticker on the bottom but it is to faded to read.  It's a great addition to my collection.

The two yellow Pyrex dishes are the small dishes from the refrigerator set I found both with the lids.  The salt and pepper shakers in Corning Ware in the Blue Cornflower pattern.  And a Corning Ware 4 Cup Starburst coffee carafe.

  1. Good Afternoon Denise, What a fabulous collection of goodies you have found. Looking at the postcards and photographs, I wonder who it was, that took the time to collect them, then to place them in an album.... they were obviously loved.
    The teabag holder is unusual. My eldest daughter used to work at Harrods, so it was interesting to see the model van.
    I have enjoyed looking at your lovely treasures.
    Best Wishes

  2. Neat collection of British finds! I like the paper weight. Those used to an easy find but not so much around here anymore. I wonder why? What a great variegated Hosta. I am looking for some different kinds to plant. Will write this name down. Thanks!
