"Rothschild Bird" - a Summer Luncheon
Herend's Rothschild Bird pattern was our wedding china, and I still love it as much as when I first received it, 25+ years ago. I thought it would be fun to do four posts with this china - one for each season. Summer is first!
My Rothschild Bird salt and pepper cellar was a gift from my husband.
Sterling silver quail salt and pepper shakers - another gift from my husband.
I love the shadows created by the openwork baskets, with the sun shining through at a September early morning angle.
A dinner plate, above, and dinner with salad, below.
Antique cut crystal wine glasses have a floral and vine motif.
Antique cutwork napkins and antique faux-ivory handled silver forks and knives with beautiful etching.
The back of the large tureen is as lovely as the front.
I hope you enjoy looking at this summer setting as much as I have enjoyed putting it together. I'm already thinking about the autumn setting, coming soon!
