Time again for Tea Cup Tuesday!
I was lucky and did find a few new cups on my trip!
Today I am sharing a 4 piece place setting of Johnson Bros. China
Found in a Salvation Army shop in Newmarket, Ontario.
I have always loved thistles. They are so beautiful.
Seeing these lovely thistles on this china made me stop and smile : )
There were quite a few, and I chose a setting of four to take home with me.
The coloring looks lovely in a holiday setting.
The silver trim adds to the wintry feel.
The oval shape of the plates is an extra treat for this set.
I find this shape charming!
This is the backstamp.
I have looked it up in my books, and some on line, but did not find one with the
1 and S. Anyone out there specialize in Johnson Bros?
If I had to guess, I would put them around 1940(ish).
I am quite tickled to bring this set home from our travels!
Thank you so much for stopping by for a visit today
and for sharing tea with me!
I am thrilled you were here!
