SOLD - In the stack of Coalport bird plates that came my way I found this beauty from 1885. It is not by John Randall - he would never paint birds like these as his big passion was to put birds in as realistic a setting as possible. Have you ever seen redstarts embracing each other with a wing? I haven’t, but in my imagination it seems to be he most natural thing in the world. This moving image makes me smile - and the way it is set in a superbly potted and gilded plate makes it all even better. The gilding is in the Sevres style, and have you spotted the butterflies that are hidden in it? The plate is up on my shop, or send me a direct message for info 🧡🧡 . . #gentlerattleofchina #rattlethecups #hightea #highteaparty #vintageteaparty #antique #antiques #antiqueshop #englishantiques #englishantiques #finebonechina #porcelain #porcelaincup #teacupcollector #porcelaincups #teacuplover #interiordesign #finechina #interiordesigner #decorativeantiques #antique_r_us #antiqueporcelain #dinnerparty #desserttable #dessertporn #onetofollow #coalport #birds #sevres #cobaltblue #redstart

Morning! Mini F&G are back to school today, so I’m taking a quiet half hour to enjoy a coffee in peace and quiet before firing up the oven for the day ahead. The school hols have been good fun but a bit of a crazy juggling act this year, so we’re all looking forward to getting back in to a routine I think. Continuing the look back at some of my favourite vintage tea parties for Afternoon Tea week, this was one of the parties from the first year I did Mother’s Day afternoon teas. This one was so pretty when it was all set up in a lovely dining room decorated in a beautiful vintage style, I love the colours of this picture 💕 . . . . #afternoonteaweek #afternoontea #vintageteaparty #teaandcake #tablescape #vintageteacup #cakestand #myvintagestyle #instavintage #neverenoughvintage #vintagelove #soloverly #pursuepretty #flashesofdelight #thatsdarling #myeverydaymagic #thehappynow #simplejoys #visualcrush #lovelysquares #alltheprettythings #prettypastels #sweettooth #lovecake #teaandscones #fromwhereistand #creativehappylife

It seems to be a week of birds! Today I am showing a teacup and saucer made by Wedgwood between 1812 and 1820. What made Wedgwood most famous was their excellent neo-Classicist designs, which they excelled at in the early 19th Century and some of which are still in production today (the famous Jasperware series for instance). What is much more rare is to find a teacup like this with a “Chinoiserie” design. For whatever reason, Wedgwood Chinoiserie has not remained as famous even though they made a lot of it in the early 19th Century, while many of its competitors created styles and patterns that have become famous. This cup has a bird sitting on a branch with beautiful Chinese flowers. It was most probably faithfully copied from a Chinese original, or perhaps made up with elements taken from Chinese examples. The ground of the items is decorated with a very light print of thousands of little swirls, creating the soft slightly cloudy looking background. The decoration is applied over the glaze, causing you to feel it with your fingers, giving the cup and saucer a very earthy feel. It is a sublime piece of work and the items were potted from the finest white bone china… and don’t you just adore that little bird? What is he thinking about? You can find this set in my shop, or send me a direct message for info 🐦 🌸💙 . . #gentlerattleofchina #rattlethecups #hightea #highteaparty #vintageteaparty #vintagetea #antique #antiques #antiqueshop #englishantiques #englishantiques #finebonechina #porcelain #porcelaincup #teacupcollector ctor #porcelaincups #teacuplover #interiordesign #finechina #interiordesigner #decorativeantiques #regency #finechina #wedgwood #gilt #bird #birds #chinoiserie #antique_r_us #antiqueporcelain #onetofollow

Continuing the Afternoon Tea Week theme with this lovely spread from a while back, where the tea in the tea cups was replaced with some very grown up gin cocktails. The client asked for a gin and jam themed party to celebrate the launch of her Jamberry nail business, so along with the cocktails the guests enjoyed savoury tarts filled with sweet chilli jam & crumbly cheddar, scones with jam and cream, cute little jam thumbprint cookies, and the centrepiece was a chocolate, peanut butter and raspberry jam filled drip cake (one of my very favourite flavour combos ❤️). Afternoon tea with a twist, this was a proper G & Tea! . . . . #afternoontea #afternoonteaweek #teaandcake #gandtea #jamberry #vintageteaparty #vintageteacup #teaparty #vintagelove #vintagestyle #instavintage #cakestagram #tablescape #vintagetable #thehappyplanner #soloverly #thatsdarling #pursuepretty #sweettooth #flashesofdelight #creativehappylife #cocktails #ginfizz #cakedesign #cakesbae #lovecake #myeverydaymagic
MORE THAN JUST A PRETTY PARTY ... we have FUN! At our recent Princess Charlotte tea, the girls played bingo, did a craft and learned about formal manners (including when they should remove their white gloves!). They each went home with their gloves and a “pearl” necklace—and enjoyed wearing fascinators, too! All the little details made an unforgettable afternoon! ❤️🇬🇧❤️ . . . #princesscharlotteparty #kidspartyideas #hightea #portlandteaparty #portlandpartyrentals #vintageteaparty #vintageteacup #fascinator #portlandvintagerentals #portlandweddingshower #portlandkidsparty #oneperfectafternoon #fancyteaparty #partyprettyportland

#Repost @gentlerattleofchina (@get_repost ) ・・・ Happy Monday! Today I am starting a new series of beautiful items: the bird paintings of John Randall. I will show you a new item each Monday, culminating in something very special in late September… but you’ll have to wait for that. John Randall was a very famous porcelain painter throughout the 19th Century. He was born in 1810 and died 100 years later, apparently still bright and witty at the grand old age of 100 years. He was trained painting in the Sèvres style at his uncle’s decoration shop, before working for Coalport the rest of his life. We start with two rather early Coalport plates from 1845. They have bright pink “Rose Pompadour” rims and beautiful pheasant paintings, all in the Sèvres style. You can already see the very distinct Randall style even in these traditional images: the imagination with which he painted the background, the way the vegetation moves up as well as down, and the sharpness of the birds, creating a wonderful depth in the painting. And the birds move with a freedom that is uncommon to the average Sèvres copy. I have two of these plates available, have a look in my shop or send me a direct message for info 💕 🦅 🍽🌸 . . #gentlerattleofchina #rattlethecups #hightea #highteaparty #vintageteaparty #antique #antiques #antiqueshop #englishantiques #englishantiques #finebonechina #porcelain #porcelaincup #teacupcollector #porcelaincups #teacuplover #interiordesign #finechina #interiordesigner #decorativeantiques #antique_r_us #antiqueporcelain #dinnerparty #desserttable #dessertporn #onetofollow #coalport #johnrandall #birdsofpreyofinstagram #finechina
It’s the start of the week again! Where is this summer going? Hope you have all had a wonderful Monday! Recently I’ve noticed that stylists are using rosemary to style their tables at wedding receptions. I think it’s an amazing idea!

It’s a damp and grey Monday here, but the F&G kitchen is warm and cosy, and smelling of lots of yummy things. It’s also the start of National Afternoon Tea week, so I thought I’d celebrate by posting a few pics from some of my favourite vintage tea parties from the past two years. This one was the very first tea party I did, for a special first birthday party for my niece and her little baby group friends. (The tea and cake was for the mums though!) Finger sandwiches, scones with clotted cream and jam, little hummus & roasted tomato tarts and an Earl Grey tea loaf, followed by salted caramel brownies, zesty lime meringue kisses, and blueberry & almond friands. I’ve picked up loads more vintage pieces since this party, and the table styling for events looks quite different now, but this is where it all began! It’s lovely to look back and see how far I’ve come since F&G started out - it’s been a steep learning curve at times, but so much fun ☺️ . . . . #afternoonteaweek #afternoontea #vintageteaparty #myvintagelife #teaandcake #neverenoughvintage #tablescape #vintagetable #vintageteacup #pursuepretty #thatsdarling #soloverly #flashesofdelight #cakestand #earlgrey #teaandscones #creamtea #instavintage #thehappynow #creativehappylife #documentyourdays #fromwhereistand #cakestagram #instayum #popyacolour

SOLD - After all the bright blue and white, I am showing you something that I think is beautiful even though it’s a little worn. A coffee cup from between 1833 and 1847 made by Copeland & Garrett - a later version of the Spode factory. Copeland & Garrett embraced the Rococo Revival style in a way that Spode never quite managed. They say that true innovators always hit a wall in the next wave of innovation, and so it was for Spode. This short period in the life of this factory was defining as it left behind its previously fashion-defining shapes, which by then had become outdated, and caught up with fashion. The shape of this set is of course wonderful with the elaborately worked handle, and look at the birds! I can’t decide whether they are just beautiful or also a little bit scary. The cup is in excellent condition except that it is worn on the outside, but you can find it in my shop for a modest price, or send me a direct message for info 🦅 💛☕️ . . . #gentlerattleofchina #rattlethecups #hightea #highteaparty #vintageteaparty #vintagetea #antique #antiques #antiqueshop #englishantiques #finebonechina #porcelain #porcelaincup #teacupcollector #porcelaincups #teacuplover #interiordesign #finechina #interiordesigner #decorativeantiques #homedecor #finechina #copelandandgarrett #rococo #rococorevival #neorococo #antique_r_us #antiqueporcelain #onetofollow #birds #peacocks
