Noritake Stanford Court and Lorelei

Legend has it that a mythical siren named Lorelei lives among the rocks and lures sailors to their death by her voice. Not quite an appetizing topic, but it makes a great center and conversation piece.  

Years ago, Pat bought a "Lorelei" figurine because she always loved the legend. Here's the table this week that she set using it:

Flatware is "Gold Iconic" by Wallace

Pat used a Lenox "Mansfield" charger to add more interest

Just wanted to show what the cup and saucer looked like.....

Another interesting piece - a cigarette holder

These antique brass lanterns are authentic - from Pat's husband

  1. Beautiful! The shell pattern on the china plays well with Lorelei. A lovely tablescape, as usual.

  2. I love the table and the centerpiece. The story is one I have heard from many a boater in my family.
