PORCELLANA & CO *** CHINA & CO

YYY
E' stata una settimana piena di piacevoli sorprese per quanto concerne la porcellana. Primo in ordine di apparizione è stato il regalo ricevuto dalla mia collega tedesca Irene, la quale per uno scambio con dei calici di argento placcato, mi ha inviato un bellissimo servizio da caffè di porcellana rosa della Hutschenreuther. Notate la finezza del delizioso rilievo con delle piccolissime rose nonchè la minuscola rosellina con le sue foglie sul coperchio della zuccheriera... una vera delizia!

It looks I had a very good week in terms of one of my favorite things - china.
On Friday a marvellous a Hutschebreuther rosè porcelain coffee set arrived from my German colleague Irene. We had made a swap - 6 silverplated glasses for the Hutschenreuther set. It was a great deal (I guess I was the lucky one in the swap!).
Look at the very fine relief on the demittasse and the gentle little rose and leaves on the sugar bowl and on the coffee post lids. Such a treasure...

Trafficando a casa di Caterina, la mia amica del cuore, sono spuntati fuori vari servizi "importanti" da tè e da caffé della cui valore Caterina e suo marito Mario erano totalmente all'oscuro. Belle queste tazze della Royal Albert.
***
I was over at Caterina's, my best friend, yesterday and we found a quit a number of tea and coffee sets whose value was totally unknown to both Caterina and her husband. It was a real eye candy for me and as I happened to have my camera along (I always do) I took some pics. Didn't turn out that great, but they are good enough.
YYY
Il secondo fine-settimana di ogni mese ospita da noi il mercatino dell'antiquariato. Io ho la mia "fornitrice" di fiducia sul cui banco tutta la merce esposta ha il medesimo presso - 10 Euro.

Il mese scorso avevo acquistato, tra le varie cose, una deliziosa tazza da te della Winterling Bavaria con decoro in oro zecchino ed un prezioso decoro floreale all'interno. Questa volta ha superato se stessa riuscendo a procurarmene una seconda... eccezionale.
***
Last weekend was our monthly flea market appointment. I have my own supplier of china who offers all items on her stall for the same price - 10 Euros per piece.

Last month I was lucky enough to get a wonderful Winterling Bavaria teacup with golden rim and decor and a tiny flower decor inside. This time she really outdid herself and got me a second one which she kindly sold to me for 5 Euros only. I think she likes me by now!!

YYY YYY
Altro fantastico acquisto è stata questa deliziosa lattiera ungherese della Zsolnay accompagnata dalla sua bella tazza da te con decoro floreale in blue. il tutto 15 Euro!!
***
Another lucky find was this lovely blue floral decor Zsolnay creamer together with its teacup - and all for 15 Euro!

For you fellow bloggers from English speaking countries our prices might sound outrageously high as such a finds are for you quite common to purchase for a few of bucks at yard or garage sales. Here, we are not that lucky!
YYYYYY

Questa tazza da potage è della Haviland, unico pezzo disponibile sul banco... meno male che ero là già all'apertura e mi sono resa utile nello scartare tutti i pezzi dagli scatoloni. Ho così potuto portarmi via tutto quello che era di mio intesse prima che il mercatino cominciasse ad affollarsi.
***
This Haviland France two-handled soup cup was nother lycky find. To tell you the truth i had reached the market ground long before the market was supposed to start and gave the lady a helping hand unpacking all her wonderful treasures. Pretty smart of me, wasn't it? I could so immediately see what I wanted to get long before other vendors and customers could set their eyes on them! Little old tricks...
YYY
E che ne dite di quesa caraffa inglese della Masons'? Adorabile n'est-ce pas?
***
How about this precious English transferware pitcher from Mason's? Tres adorable, n'est-ce pas?
YYY
Questo servizio l'avete giaà visto su questi schermi. Affatto economico, acquistato prsso un mercatino dell'usato.
***
You've already seen this gorgeous teaset in a previous post of mine. Found at a thrift store and was quite expensive, but I simply couldn't resist as it was literally calling out my name loud.
YYY
Eccovi i due servizi scovati a casa di Caterina... molto particolari e preziosi. Del tutto ignari del loro valore (sono Richard Ginori della metà dell'ottocento, se non mi sbaglio) i poveretti, li avevano affastellati nella credenza soffocati da mille altri oggettini.
***
And the next two china sets are those i found at Caterina's. Quite ignorant on their value (Richard Ginori mid-1800's) the poor little owners had put them in a cabinet covered with hundreds of bric-a-brac... too bad they aren't willing to sell them to me, konw that they know how precious they are. On the other hand right now I have no space to diplay such treasures. Better wait until I find a larger home.
YYY
YYY
Ed ultimo ma non per questo meno importante, questa lattiera polacca vintage della Karolina acquistata al mercatino dell'usato per 2.50 Euro. La trovo adorabile con quei deliziosi piedini ed il decoro floreale.
***
And last, but not least, this vintage Karolina of Poland creamer which I bought at my fave thrift store for 2.50 Euros. It's very simple but I find it soooo cute though, with that sweet floral decor and those adorable little feet.

YYY
Vista l'ora, le 2 di notte, sarà il caso di lasciare il resto per un altro post.

BuOnA NoTtE e HaPpY BlOgGing!

Looking ag my computer watch i realized it way past my bed time -it's past 2 at night and I'd better go to bed right away. The rest of my china can wait.

GoOd NiGhT and HaPpY BlOgGiNg!

Bisous

Besitos

  1. Rita dearest! WOW! What a fun and incredible time you must have had finding all these wonderful tea sets! I don't know which one I love best; I am partial to white on white, but the one with the muted vintage gold is just perfect. Oh, don't you wish we could meet halfway and have some tea? I met a wonderful lady when I was in France; she was from Florence and spoke no English, and I speak no Italian, but we both speak French, so we had such a wonderful time. I love Cinque Terra and I hope to visit Italy again soon. Lovely, lovely post!!! Anita

  8. Chère Rita!
    Oh how lovely that you came back to get a cup of hot coffee and sit around the fireplace of your choice! I enjoy visiting you as well; I just tried reading your profile in Italian, and I am so proud of myself that I could understand a good part of it! Being Spanish and being a fluent French speaker, Italian feels good! But don't ask me to say anything!! Do come again this coming Saturday to see my little story. I am dedicating it to a fellow blogger tha has been an inspiration to me! It is wonderful how you find friends all over the world. May you have a wonderful evening, Rita! Anita

  10. Hi Rita,
    Where to strat? All the china you are sharing is absolutely beautiful...but I think that my most favorite would have to be the white coffee set from Irene. I love it. Oh! And I love, love, love the red and white transfer pitcher. It's gorgeous. Everything is absolutely beautiful. There is nothing better than a trip to the flea market, don't you think? Well except maybe a trip to a flea market in Italy. Oh! I can only imagine. Wish I could have joined you. Maybe one day. ;-D Rita, thank you so much for sharing and thank you for always leaving me sweet and kind comments. Your are wonderful blogging friend. I am truly blessed. Have a wonderful day.

    Hugs and Kisses,
    ♥Ana

  13. Buonasera Rita
    condivido la sua passione, ma con meno preparazione, per le porcellane trovate nei mercatini.
    Proprio oggi ho trovato 2 tazze da te ed una lattiera di porcellana rosa come le sue tazze da caffè, purtroppo mancavano i piattini ma erano irresistibili e le ho portate a casa.
    Pensa che sia possibile trovare i piattini da te?Hanno un qualche valore o sono "solo" belle e irresistibili?
    La ringrazio
    Mary

  14. hello there and thank you for your information – I have certainly picked up something new from right here.
    I did however expertise a few technical issues using this website,
    since I experienced to reload the site lots of times previous to I could
    get it to load properly. I had been wondering if your hosting is OK?
    Not that I am complaining, but slow loading instances times will very frequently affect your placement in google and could damage your
    high-quality score if ads and marketing with Adwords.
    Anyway I'm adding this RSS to my email and can look out for much more of your respective interesting content. Make sure you update this again very soon.
