Nanna Plates For Hipsters

Okay- so maybe not for hipsters. Just for me.







How excellent is this?  TOTALLY EXCELLENT, i know. It was a little pricey (don't tell Dave) but I couldn't resist. It is stamped with 'Grindley England' - does that mean anything to any of you? It is lovely quality and in pristine condition, photographed on the little strawberry doilies I collected last week.

and here too, for the first time!

  9. 'A little pricey' I can imagine! Still, one always needs a good set of dinnerware for company so a completely justifiable purchase in my opinion.

  10. Absolutely beautiful, doesn't matter what you paid to get the set, that much Grindley is so hard to find, well done.
    Is it stamped with a colour?
    have a great week
