I can't believe that after all the rain and winds over the weekend, that there are still two stems of Crown Princess Margareta to pick. In truth, they are a little worn, but not faded...and look really elegant in The Princess's new little black number. Cathy's roses are ready for bed...she always comes up with wonderful stories and props so do go and see her post.
The light is so very poor this morning that again I have had to pose the Princess in the conservatory, rather than on the red carpet.
Last week, I popped my head into a couple of the charity shops in Kenilworth with nothing in particular in mind. I have been looking for just the right black and white vases, as I have so admired the way they show off the flowers on other blogs.
The moment I saw this one I knew it was it. I did not even look at the price tag! I recognised the Robert Welch Signature on the base and the name was also imprinted below the glaze. But it was the shape and the elegance which appealed to me....I would describe it as 'High Couture', simple elegant and 'well cut', and craftsman made.
Of course when I got home I tried to find out more about it, wondering when it was made, and as part of what range. If anyone out there knows more, do let me know.
I have not been able to find anything about it so far. I even called the main outlet in Chipping Campden and an email and photograph will soon be looked out by their archivist. I'll update this entry should anything more be learnt about this vase.
