Vintage Coalport China for Pink Saturday

by Lynn on June 9, 2012

Coalport pink Anniversary cup saucer tea plateIt’s Pink Saturday over at How Sweet the Sound, and I am linking up with my newly acquired Coalport china trio. I learned about Pink Saturday last week, and couldn’t wait to participate! What could be more fun than a whole day dedicated to my favorite color?!  And knowing that I’ve got so many lovely pink things to share, I just knew I’d be able to participate in Pink Saturday for years to come! Beverly will probably regret ever having invited me…

So how did I happen upon this gorgeous English porcelain set, you ask? Well, lately I have been familiarizing myself with all things Etsy, having recently moved my little store from ebay. I wanted to start a treasury list, which is a really cool way of collecting sixteen images of items that all have a common theme. My first list had to be of course-my favorite color, and thus began my Etsy hunt for all things pink! And not just any ole pink, but items that were truly unique, magnificent, awe-inspiring, and “wow-I-must-simply-have-that” pink!

(Is it just me, or does anyone else find themselves forgetting exactly where they are in the social-media-networking-maze? “Let’s see, I can put this in my Etsy treasury, and then pin it, and then tweet the pin with a post on facebook that goes back to my blog, to stumble upon …..”- the media interconnectivity is mind boggling but that’s another post for a different day-back to Pink Saturday!)

It is in a Sevres-style or old Paris color of pink, and the gold accents just add to the beauty. The post-war mark dates this set to about 1946+. The pattern is called Anniversary. Isn’t that sweet? I’m sure that many a post-war bride would have loved to have received a set of this china for her anniversary!

The set was so gorgeous, that I just had to purchase it! Exquisite porcelain is a weakness of mine I confess. And while I’m confessing, I may as well tell you that many pieces in my vintage china collection are in fact, PINK, so I’m sure I will be able to share every last one of them with you, my dear reader! Lucky you….!
