Hi Thel...doesn't black china make a dramatic tea time? And especially with your gorgeous roses! Love all of them...I would be hard pressed to pick a favorite. I have several black beauties too. And you don't often see black Sadlers. Such a pretty scene! Have a wonderful week, and thanks for linking to Tuesday Cuppa Tea!

This is the cutest little amber glass open salt by Degenhart, USA from the 1960s called Bird & Berry..see why??? Love this little guy!
This is a dark amber pressed glass open salt, salt dip or salt cellar called Bird And Berry that was made by Degenhart, USA in the 1960s from old Victorian McKee Glass molds. The figural bird shaped open salt measures 1.75 inches high by 3.25 inches long by 2 wide and is in excellent, mint condition with no chips or cracks. So cute!

Lovely! We are dodging rain as well, so how nice you managed such a lovely tea! Love your linens and your china is so pretty. What a gorgeous garden setting, and the tart looks delicious! Thanks so much for linking to Tuesday Cuppa Tea!

Love these versatile 1920s Noritake/Morimura individual open salts...but they are great for individual teabag holders or servers of individual cream, jam or lemon curd on the tea table!
This is a pair of art deco porcelain open salt, salt dip or salt dishes made by the Morimura Company, an early mark of Noritake, Japan in the 1920s. Each hand painted open salt dip has an art deco floral design on a very pale yellow, green rim and gold trim. The open salts measures 2.5 inches long by just over 1.5 inch wide. The salt dish is in very good +++ used vintage condition with no chips or cracks. A very pretty pattern and very collectibl...
