This past year, I found a Moss Rose Demitasse Tea Set on Ebay and snapped it up. So this is Ode to Grannie Annie!
Some of these pictures were taken Wednesday morning at 7 am, before I left for work. Then I sneaked home for a few minutes to take some pictures in different light at around 10 am (still kind of dreary California light - it happens sometimes). Please let me know which light you prefer.
The 6" Coffee pot, and all the rest of the pieces are marked Made in Japan. On this table, a sweet pink toe shoe holds mints for after our tea or cocoa party.
Draped the table with a vintage pink damask tablecloth, with one napkin covering the tabletop. Oops on the ironing!
MOSS ROSE - Demitasse Tea Set This is a beautiful antique Gilded Porcelain Demitasse Coffee or Tea Set, decorated with pink roses and rosebuds with green, pink and blue leaves and stems, on a glossy white porcelain background with gold trim. The rose designs are repeated on the backs of all the pieces, as smaller versions of the front rose sprigs. . The sugar dish is 3.5" tall to the tip of the cover and 5" from handle to handle. The Cream Pitcher is 3.25" tall to the tip of its spout. The footed cups are 1.5" tall and 2.75" across the top. The saucer plates are 4.5" across.
