Pink Saturday Ambleside Teacup and Cake Plate by Roslyn, England

Hi and welcome to my Pink Saturday post with How Sweet The Sound.










This is a wonderful mostly pink patterned bone china cup and saucer and matching cake serving plate made by Roslyn, England in the 1950s. I picked up the cake plate a year or so ago on an English buying trip, but the pattern name was unreadable. I fell in love with the pattern.  Then at an antique sale a few months ago I found the cup and saucer and finally had a name for the pattern. Ambleside! I love the pinks and lavenders of the poppies and cornflowers. Lovely! Sort of an end of summer walk among the hedgerows looking at the late wild flowers.


For more info on either the cake plate or the teacup at Antiques And Teacups, click on the photos.


I am looking forward to seeing all the fun pink posts from my blogging friends, and hopefully meeting some new ones! Have a great day!
Cheers!
