Tea Cup Tuesday-Johnson Bros.

Hello All!
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 pattern has a simple white handle, with just a touch of silver along the middle.

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!

Hello dear Terri,
Sounds like we both traveled a fair distance during the holidays. Such fun spending time with loved ones! Your new china is very pretty and I like thistles myself. And it's Johnson Bros. too.

Newmarket??? that was pretty close, next time stop in for a cup of tea. Probably 35 miles, maybe 40 depending where in Newmarket. We could have posted each other. Enjoyed your post, God bless and Happy New Years...

Terri I really love that set - and you are right, it is wintry looking, yet isn't, either - perfect colour combinations - it is a truly soothing colour scheme!

What a treasure you found!

Thank you for hosting.

I love your gorgeous thistle teaset by Johnson Brothers. The thistle is found in so many locations and they differ so much from short to tall plants. I like the idea of an oval shape and makes this set lovely and unusual.
Happy New Year to You and Your Fammily!


Dorthe said...

Hi Terri,
so sorry to read that Martha needs prayers. I will for sure pray for her. Thats not a nice start for her.
Your new finds are wonderful. How outstanding is an oval shape and the thistles look really winterly and calm. I love china with silver trims, its so seldom. Thank you for sharing this wonderful set and for hosting this sweet event.
Best greetings, Johanna

What a lovely silver thistle pattern! It has such a soft and soothing look to it, which is not what usually comes to mind when thinking of thistles. :-) Thank you for hosting this virtual tea party each week.

So gorgeous Terri! I love thistles too! Did you know they are the flower of Scotland?
When my Dad passed away - we tucked a dried thistle in his suit lapel and we also had thistles engraved on his grave headstone. Perfect flower! ;)

baymoondesign said...

I love thistles and have Scotish roots so I am very jealous of your beautiful finds.

Greetings Terri ...

It's grand to share teatime once again.. Your Johnson Bros. sets are gorgeous ... The simplicity and balance of image and colour is very dreamy ... I too, love the Scottish thistle, and at first thought it was a dandelion with a fluffy seed head... either way I think it's a gorgeous addition to a your collection and a unique find.. Happy New Year.!!!!

Marjanne said...

thank you for sharing a cup of tea with us! This is a very chique cup I think! Have a nice day!!

Hi Terri,
I like the silver trim on cups as it makes them look more elegant. The plant of your cup reminds me of make up brush--so soft and gentle.

Love the motto on the tag of the tea bag. Yes, we always need to live in the NOW as past has gone and the future is not yet. Happiness is in the NOW.

Tazas y Cuentos said...

Hello Terri! Your new teacups are lovely, I like them a lot.
