A Rosy Morning at the Salvos

I was thrilled to find a Royal Albert "American Beauty" cup and sandwich plate for $1.99 . I couldn't believe the price but it didn't have a saucer...PERFECT...as my collection had a set with saucer but no sandwich plate and I'm happy to have a spare cup. I couldn't believe the price but admittedly I was there first through the door and it wasn't even out the the shop lady's trolley yet before I grabbed it.
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
THEN......I rummaged through the cutlery and found this little teaspoon and checked out it's mark and noticed it was German silver YAY!
 
 
 
 
 Sighhhhh....my morning was complete!

  18. Wow! Looks like it was your lucky day :) I'm happy for you about the cup and plate, but that spoon is amazing :) They do not do that kind of workmanship anymore.

  19. Lovely tea service and spoon! But it's that header that really gets to me. I am such a map, globe, and graph nut! I can't seem to throw away maps, and have a whole huge boxful of them. I'll have to do a blog post on that some day. lol

    BEAUTIFUL tea set. :-)
