Spode Buttercup Classic Table

For this week's table, Pat chose Spode's "Buttercup." Both Pat and I like this pattern. She owns twenty complete place settings and I own eight. (Pat's late mother-in-law introduced her to the pattern nearly fifty years ago and Pat has been acquiring it since then. Then Pat gave me a couple of place settings - of course, that was a BIG mistake since I'm a dishaholic and couldn't stop with just two.....)
Pat generally uses blue as the accent color for "Buttercup" when she sets the table, but she has been known to "take it to the next level".(Here)  As she says, it is very versatile and can be dressy or casual.

Since the table was set for a Ladies Luncheon, Pat used the coffee and tea pot for a simple centerpiece.

For the charger, Pat used Wedgwood's "Edme" chargers

Flatware is "Wind Song" silverplate by Oneida (which was relatively inexpensive and sold door to door when it was produced during the 1940's and 1950's)

Water goblets are "Navarre" by Fostoria

Buttercup was a very popular pattern - in fact, Harry Rinker list both the Old Backstamp and Newer Backstamp patterns in his book Dinnerware of the 20th Century: The Top 500 Patterns. 

Pat made small arrangements in cream soup bowls

I love the classic candle holders from Abingdon Pottery in matching blue

One last look from the other end of the table
Where it came from:
Blue Place Mats and coordinating Napkins - from Gottschalk's (a local Department store long out of business)

Dinnerware - Older Backstamp (1924-1992) from wherever I can find it
Flatware - "Wind Song" Silverplate by Oneida
Blue Water Goblet - "Navarre" by Fostoria
Napkin Rings - from Art & Old Things (a local antique store)

  1. Loving the buttercup spode, the ruffled edges is calling my name!

  2. A beautiful table! I love the ruffle edged plates, and using the lace placemats over the blue is a nice touch.
