Spode Delamere Bouquet Table

I finally completed my set of Spode Delamere Bouquet! Since it is a discontinued pattern, I have relied on to get my place settings. (I couldn't afford to buy them all at one time, so I bought a single place setting every so often, and before you knew it, I had a complete set.) I  always wanted this set from the first time I saw it......

Pat used a Depressionware sherbet and liner to give the place setting some height.

Flatware is "Grand Colonial" sterling silver by Wallace (a gift from very kind and generous Cousins)

One of my favorite Depressionware patterns - "Newport Amethyst" by Hazel Atlas

The smaller Charger is a "White" Fiesta(ware) Chop Plate Homer Laughlin

Pat used two Charger - this time an antique silver one from Tuesday Morning

I couldn't post this tablescape without telling the story of this place mat - Pat found them at Pier 1 several years ago and bought all they had. They were less than 50 cents each. (I thought they were ugly, a waste of money, and that we would never use them....boy, was I wrong. They're still ugly, but.....I mean purple faux leather......)

  1. One of my favorite tables you've ever done. I can totally understand your desire to obtain a set of this exquisite china! The pattern and color are the things that explain why tablescapers continue their hobby and their search for these pieces of art. Absolutely beautiful!

  2. What a beautiful table! To start with, the purple transferware is just wonderful, and I think the stemware is absolutely perfect with it. Of course, I love the Depression Glass pieces, too. And who knew those purple faux leather placemats would be just the thing these dishes needed? (I guess Pat knew...) This table is another work of art.

  3. Boy this is a beautiful table!!! I laughed at your story about the placemats!! They really do work! very pretty!

  4. I love the soft colours of the dishes. Everythinng coordinates so beautifully.

  5. The purple Delamere is stunning. I love it in brown and grey and had no idea it came in purple. What a gorgeous pattern, and set off so beautifully with the depression glass. Really lovely!
