New Collection?


As usual, Sunday morning found us setting off for a car boot sale - it was a lovely sunny day & the sellers & buyers were out in force. I did find some lovely goodies but this has to be the bargain of the day - seven Woods "Utility" china cups & saucers in their pretty Jasmine colourway for 50p....that's 50p for the lot, not each!

I find myself becoming very fond of them so they'll be staying in my kitchen......could this be the start of yet another collection?

  1. That was a lucky buy - it must be bargain of the month! I love utility china, especially the yellows and pinks.

  2. I was brought up with that dinner service! Mum had a complete Green BerylWare including the serving dishes with lids and granny had a Pink tea service. Not sure what these colours were called. I remember having to buy a new teapot lid every so often when it was accidently dropped!!

  12. I love that shade of yellow, although isn't it really called Jasmine or something like that? Mind you, for 50p, who cares what it's called! But the term "Utility" isn't the correct one; utility was during the WW2 years and just after and I think the crockery was thick, white stuff, not this lovely sherbet-coloured stuff. Tea always tastes better out of something so cheerful, doesn't it?

  26. Amazing price! I have a similar dinner set in blue with no bowls and dinner plates- it has cups, saucers, tea plates and salad/entrée plates. Service for 8 second-hand for $40, no where near your bargain but still ok price
