I love china, but until I was in my late 40s, I never had a complete set of china. Then little by little, I collected Old Country Roses, which matches my house perfectly. But in the past and now, I still love to collect individual pieces of china. To me there is something so charming about old or new sugar bowls and creamers.
The maker is unknown on this one, but I purchased it at T J Maxx for the amazing price of $5.99. Why amazing? Because it is made of fine bone china. I sell glassware in a collectibles booth, and most bone china pieces go from $28.00 right on up, depending on the item. Most of my bone china teacups and saucers sell for $25.00 to $30.00.
This little charmer is a covered sugar bowl. It has deep pink, white, and light pink roses on the front and back, with greenery. It has a lid with roses all around the rim, and the sugar bowl is trimmed in gold. This can be a service piece or a decorative one. Right now, I have it on my coffee table in the living room. It has a Victorian feel to it, and my house is decorated in that style. It's very girly and feminine. I don't have the matching creamer yet, but I keep hoping that I'll come across it. This would be perfect for tea or coffee in the afternoon, and I love to mix and match china pieces. If you're interested in individual china pieces at great prices, check out T J Maxx. They have lots of closeout items, and I often find beautiful teapots, teacups, creamers, and sugar bowls at bargain prices. I love my rose covered sugar bowl!
