One Lump or Two?

I have been doing some rearranging at home lately and realized that I have quite a collection of sugar and creamers. I, also, have a secret concerning them, but more about that later!

I have always had a passion about the design of these special serving pieces. Maybe, I like the fact that they come in pairs and enjoying seeing them on a table together. Maybe, it is the fact that sometimes they are the very best designed pieces in a china pattern. I really am not sure, but I do love them!

I have gotten rid of several pieces through the years and, now, wish that I could have them back. What was I thinking? Oh, I remember! It was a space issue at the time.

My first ones were the Lenox “Solitaire” set, which are pictured at the beginning of this blog.

I have pieces made out of several different materials. Here is a silverplate set that I received, when I married.

I have glass ones – Gorham “Star Blossom” and

Cambridge “Diane”

I have small ones like this Wedgwood Jasperware set and a

Royal Crown “Devon Rose” demitasse set

I, also, have large ones like the Cardew “Alice in Wonderland” and

Maxcera “Amour”

I have ones that look like space ships – Taylor, Smith and Taylor “Boutonniere” and

Ones that look like Aladdin’s lamp, Harker Pottery’s “Aladdin” pattern in the teal color. These were my mother’s.

I have several that match my china patterns

Narumi “Mountain Cherry”

Royal Doulton “Samarra”

Villeroy and Boch “Intarsia”

Mikasa “Yardley”

Syracuse “Wayne”, one of my favorites

Minton “Marlow”

And one of the two sets that match my Spode “Christmas Tree” china – the other set, which consists of a Jack-in-the-Box sugar and a Rocking Horse creamer are really packed away – I am sure you will see them, when I post my Christmas blog this year!

I hope that I remembered to include all of my sets! Do you have some piece or pieces of china that you really love and cannot resist? If you are reading this blog, I will bet that you do!!

Oh, I almost forgot to tell you my big secret about collecting sugar and creamer sets. I never use them myself – I drink my coffee black!!!!
