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.
