The current generation are now inheriting their parents or grand parents tea sets from the cabinet.
Tonnes of this type of stuff around and nobody to buy it. The royal tara wares have some quality but it is too old fashioned for tastes today.
Having a tea set in a living-room display cabinet is nearly a thing of the past. I'd say car-boot or adverts
Thanks for your reply. They don't seem to go on adverts either. Think we'll put them up for a week and if they don't go then we'll donate them to a charity shop.
Might keep the paisley one, I kinda like it.
Photo links got lost in the "upgrade"
Agree. Heaps of 'good' china were bought; usually as wedding presents, rarely used and hoarded in glass cabinets in nearly every home in the country.
I think I've got a set that's similar if not identical to the second pic. Probably complete too as I doubt it was brought out and used more than a handful of times.
Not to mention the crystal...I think there are 5 carafes in the cabinet and the in laws didn't even drink.
