Welcome to this week’s Tablescape Thursday post. Let me be up front here, I’m not sure this table setting works. The idea was to combine this very nice casual dinnerware from Royal Doulton with cut glass stemware that echoed the line theme. Tell me what you think.
The country style tablecoth came from my mom and picks up the gold and burnt orange rim decoration. The design is a little busy.
The stemware is Dolores cut crystal from Tiffin Glass, which I used before in this Tablescape post. It has a simple sweeping line of cut leaves. The dinnerware is Cinnamon from Royal Doulton. Both stemware and china are in my shop, Vintage Elegant Depression Glass, and I’ve sold quite a bit of the Cinnamon. These are the lunch plates.
Royal Doulton makes excellent quality fine china and the sturdier casual dishes like these. Cinnamon dates to 1974 to 1983. The set we have for sale came with serving pieces in a coordinating pattern, Summer Days, which has big exuberant flowers along with the same stripes.
What do you think? Does the elegant crystal go with the casual dinnerware? Are the similar line motifs strong enough to pull these together? Drop me a comment and let me know.
