Heather's 11th Teatime Tuesday & Teapot and Tea Things Tuesday for September 21, 2010.

Hi everyone....okay...I just came home a few minutes ago. My dad and I volunteered to go home early...and we were sent home about 30 minutes early...so that's good.  Then we went to the grocery store to pick of fixin's for BFD...."Breakfast for Dinner"...yummy, yummy and did I say yummy!!!! Okay...Here are my tea things for Tuesday. Today my "theme" is showing different pieces that happened to made from the same company in Germany.  If you know anything OR if you happen to have the same pieces, please let me know. It would be fun to learn what you know!!!

This first one is a piece I inherited from my grandmother.  This belonged to her parents before that...and it's a nice plate with a lace edging and a fall design of fruit. I really like the "lace" look on china. It's new to me and very beautiful...with the delicate gold trim on the edge and inset.  I don't know if there were other pieces in this set at any point in the distant past...but this managed to survive and makes it way to my home ;) :)

This plate would be perfect for a nice thick slice of cake or some other yummy baked treat :) :) :) The maker is Schumann in Arzberg, Germany with the number "46" stamped on the back.  Does anyone know if that means it was part of a limited edition?

This next one is another piece that somehow survived the generations...and managed to make it to my home. This also once belonged to my great-grandparents and I've since inherited this too. It's about the size of a saucer...howevr the edges are quite round at the ends...so I don't think this would have held a teacup...a demitasse, maybe...but I suspect it would have been used for something else. Does anyone have any ideas? I went crazy over this one...because I LOVE the roses...and beautiful lacework....that's a great combination :) :) :)

This is also made by Schumann in Germany... "Arzberg" is not on there...but everything is  exactly the same, including the logo. This one has the number "41" stamped on the back.

Now if you remember awhile back I had purchased a matching demitasse with saucer at a yard sale?  Here is that cup...I reposted the photos...and guess what...when I received the first two plates and saw the backstamp...a smile broke out over my face...This is the exact same company that made this demitasse and saucer. How cool is that? The little sugar bowl is from a different maker, but I didn't have any other photos of the demitasse with the saucer.

I'm not sure why I didn't get a photo of the backstamp on the demitasse...but I think because it was the same as the one on the matching saucer.

Here's the backstamp on the saucer...made by Schumann in Arzberg, Germany...and this time it has a pattern name "Wild Rose" with the number "41" stamped on the back!!!

Those are my tea things for this week. I'm so glad that you could stop by and share a humble/but full of friendship, love and hugs cups of tea with me :) :) :) That's the news from Oregon today. Love and hugs, Heather :)

That lace cut edging on that rose plate is just beautiful. All of the pieces are lovely but that rose one is my favorite. I am not very knowledgeable in china. I have recently begun collecting a few pieces and have some of my grandmothers and some of my husbands grandmothers. Hope you have a great Wednesday :)

Hello, sweet Heather. I hope you are having a lovely day.

Guess what...we are having breakfast for dinner tonight as well!! Daughter is, in fact, cooking as I type this. It's a breakfast casserole, hash browns, and pumpkin waffles. My son is always thrilled to no end when it's BFD day...he wants it several times a week, but we usually only have it once a week.

Your tea things are beautiful. I, too, love the lace edge on china. I don't think I have any china that has lace edges, but I LOVE it. The one with the rose is totally beyond gorgeous. LOVE it!!!

I can't help you out with any of the backstamp info...I don't know a thing.

Well, my sweet friend, have a lovely evening.

O mY!! What beautiful pieces you have shared with us today and how lucky you are to have inherited them. That is what makes them extra special is that they were handed down to you over several generations!!
Don't you wish they could tell you their story.... something about your ancesters that owned them before you???

Hi Heather,
You have such gorgeous tea things. I love the lacy look of the china. I don't know anything about tea things so I can't help there.
It's too funny--we also had breakfast for supper last night--I wanted something tasty, easy on my stomach and something I already had in the house.
I hope your job is going well and you are able to get some knitting time in!! I hope your shoulder/arm is better. Take care.

It was wonderful that you took the time to stop in for tea last week. I love putting mismatched pieces together. Like putting friends together to meet for the first time. Wonderful tea things this week. I love German made china...so exquisite.
I am still in catch up mode from my trip but tea is being. Hope you can join the fun!
Have a blessed week.

Hi Heather,
Your china pieces are gorgeous! I would love to have a piece from my Great-grandparents! What a blessing for you to have these! I love the little rose plate; the cut-outs are simply scrumptious! I'm afraid I cannot help you with their origin but I'm sure someone out there could help you. You're obviously drawn to German made china. That's pretty cool that the cup has the same markings as the others. Thanks for sharing your treasures and I hope you have a delightful day, dear friend.

Hi Heather :) These are some quite lovely German pieces you've shared with us. Sorry I am a day late, but I have been under the weather for the past couple of days, and today I am just starting to feel more like myself :) I too like to make BFD on occasions, but my family thinks I'm crazy for doing so, lol :)

Hope you are having a lovely day my friend!

Warmest hugs, Brenda

These are beautiful pieces! A nice big slice of cake sounds sooo good right now! It's so wonderful that some of those pieces belonged to your grandmother! I hope work is still treating you well!
