The other day a male acquantance rang up and said: "Just been helping So and so to clean out her house and there's a box of material. Do you want it?"
Well really! How would I know until I look. I couldn't even picture who So and so was. So half and hour later along comes a car with a racketty trailer in tow and I get to poke through and find a few bits I love. But then I looked deeper and found this.
And in that box was this single set - cup, saucer and plate - Queen Anne bone china.
I knew exactly who would love it.
There were also a few other bits and pieces of royal china just casually dumped in the box. So now I have a few more pieces to add to my collection.
