Was happy to see my new pieces of late 18th century French porcelain from Magdalene came in looking even more lovely than anticipated…and worked perfectly with my shell like wedding limoges and later pieces of Herend Rothschild bird. I remember 26 years ago…feeling like you needed 12 place settings…all pieces! Now…I love a little tête à tête set here, a ladies who lunch set there. Sets of two…sets of six…much easier to find room for in the china cabinet…and more importantly…to use! And I especially love mixing and matching…we’ve come a long way from perfect sets!

How perfect is that!??
It’s not always easy finding more than the random cup and saucer here and there. Forget a set of twelve…a set of six is impressive! And now…a matching teapot, milk jug, and sucrier…finding their way from late 1700′s France!
I have updated the Private Collector’s Sale of 18th century French Porcelain here..or just click the bar at the top of my page. Some prices have been dropped, sold pieces removed or noted. And since Magdalene’s company is called Pillows et Plus…I added a plus at the bottom…a tease photo of a beautiful signed 18th century Swedish trunk. If interested…just email Magdalene for more info and additional photos.
Also…met Tricia Rose of Rough Linen here and Kit Golson of Chic Provence here for lunch the other day. Speaking of ladies who lunch! I actually won a set of smooth white linen from Tricia…will post photos of the beautiful set soon. Wanted to quickly mention Kit has two more spaces for her Spring tour still open, if you’re interested! It’s always nice to relax and have someone else who knows the area well help you get the very most out of a very special trip!
