LAURA ASHLEY DINNERWARE
Laura Ashley Dinnerware
(The chargers seen behind my dinnerware were hand painted
by me to go with my new dinnerware)
On a beautiful white shelf that my husband and I built sits some of my Laura Ashley Petite Fleur Dinnerware. This beautiful set has a soft pink border and is adorned with pink roses. It is so feminine and beautiful and it makes a lovely table setting. I like to pair it with pink drinking glasses and a lace tablecloth. Oh and my little bird salt and pepper (see them in the picture).
My sweet husband bought a set for me on my 40th Birthday. I was so delighted with it that I asked for another set for Christmas. My Birthday is in December so I did not have to wait to long to get my second set. Combined I have 8 sets of the 6 piece place settings. That following year I managed to get 2 different tea sets by Laura Ashley (teapot, 4 mugs and 4 plates each set), 2 Petite Fleur serving platters and a large Petite Fleur serving bowl. I later found the Laura Ashley Celia sandwich/snack plates and cups. I have 2 sets of those each with 4 plates and 4cups.
I love my Laura Ashley porcelain and I am glad that I was able to get it before it disappeared off the market. I believe this set came out in 1976 and has since been discontinued. It is very difficult to find now but I have seen some pieces on eBay from time to time.
Here is a stock image from the set.
If you arrived here through my Pinterest, here is a link to eBay where you might still find a few pieces from this set. eBay
