Years ago when my mom lived in Germany she worked part time in a small shop that sold fine china as well as other fine decor items. Once in a while they would end up with left over odd pieces of porcelain dinnerware which would be marked down drastically and placed on sale. One of these pieces was this beautiful Blue Chatham pattern teapot. My mother actually bought several pieces of this pattern and divided them up between my grandma and me when she came back from Germany.
The teapot didn’t come with the creamer or the sugar bowl nor the teacups, so I had it up on display on a shelf along with the rest of my teapot collection.
I had occasionally searched for the two missing pieces on Ebay but I was dissapointed to find that this pattern was discontinued and pieces were either unavailable or prohibitively expensive. But the other day I got lucky and I found both the creamer and the sugar bowl for a very reasonable price, from two different Ebay sellers. I snatched them up ASAP before they disappeared forever. Now the three piece set is complete.
My mom had also bought me this soup tureen in the same pattern
And these two little oval serving bowls
Even though I don’t have the teacups and saucers, I think Blue Chatham goes quite well with my Blue Danube teacups, don’t you think?
