I've been a subscriber to Tea Time since it's inception.
It's a magazine that I truly look forward to
and I have saved each and every issue
Imagine my surprise at this article in this month's issue
You know that I adore blue and white transfer ware
And was surprised to find a mix of Spode Blue Italian and Spode Blue Camilla
A Camilla plate for the sandwiches
And a Camilla covered dish to keep the scones warm
While a Blue Italian holds the flowers in the background
I'm not sure what this piece is but it appears that it is Blue Italian.
It's a compote but it is not flat . . . . a piece for me to hunt?
I think this is the bottom of the vegetable dish -- a Blue Italian one
While in the background are Camilla plates . . . and a much wanted but can't afford, Camilla tea pot!
Camilla cup and saucer and plate for tea treats
While at Linderhof . . .
Spode Camilla makes a nice tea for four
Tea plates, cups and saucers and cream and sugar . . .
A Blue Italian sandwich plate holds cookies
The cake plate is Camilla and goes with the cups and saucers. Alas, lacking a Camilla teapot, I make do with a silver one!
Camilla gain for tea. A Spode Blue Room teapot fills in for a Camilla pot!
I love the blues of the Camilla -- softer than Blue Italian
This set has a gold rim which is quite rare!
And a trio -- A Camilla tea plate, and cup and saucer
I think Camilla is perfect for tea!
It's nice to see that a national magazine feels that way too!
