Pretty in Pink

I have always had a love for hotelware because it is so rugged and a lot chunkier than most china.  Vitresol or hotel/restaurant china has been specially glazed to withstand the harsh environment of the service industry.
Very occasionally I have come across it in pink.  The palest pink like these cups from J. Meakin and Sons.  I found them in such an old shop, the staircase was leaning literally 20 degrees to the right!
This huge pink pitcher and tiny pink creamer were really unusual finds too.
I have a thing for pale pink and silver.


  1. Oh Chania, these are gorgeous as always!! I am sure we are kindred spirits my dear! We just seem to love the same thing! I have not been able to undo my gorgeous teaspoons, as you tied them together so beautifully:) I love the pink china, just gorgeous:) Hope you are having a wonderful weekend ~ Tina XX

  6. The china is so pretty, I love the way you have styled your photos, so beautiful. I love pink and silver together. xx

  7. Unlike most, I am not a pink person.....

    But I kinda do like your pink hotelware---maybe because I have never seen it in pink before....very different!

    Now your silver?

    That, I definitely love!
