Hyacinth Bucket, eat your heart out

A get-together of the ABCs (quilting buddies) at my home today gave me the opportunity to use some special pieces of Royal Doulton "Pansy" china that belonged to my grandmother, and which my mother has only recently handed down to me.

I love the vibrant colors of these pansies dancing on the sandwich plate, and the elegant angular shape of the cups and saucers. The height of 1930s sophistication.
