I think these are the most beautiful dishes, the creamy white and the deep red.
I knew nothing about these being popular due to a cookbook. I noticed them in a nearby antique shop sometime last year. Each time I went back I would be reminded how much I liked them as they caught my eye. But they were a bit pricey for me, so I just enjoyed them through the glass. So what should I do? Take my husband with me of course. After Christmas, carrying a bit of Christmas money with me, and my husband, we went shopping. We stopped in to check out the dishes, I had told him about them on the way. So, after much discussion, we left with the dishes, my husband contributing what would be my birthday present coming up the next month. I was so excited, thinking I could easily add to them - I found out different. They are very popular and usually only found in the United Kingdom. The original purchase was for two dinner plates, two tea cups with three saucers, nine desert plates, and the cheese-butter dish.
