    I'm going to look for those OCR bunny s&p shakers for my friend who has that hugh collection of it. They are adorable..we have TJMax and Home Goods near us. I found 4 salad/dessert dishes and 1 dinner plate of Berry Fields, made by Creative Tops at TJMax and I've been to 4 other locations and only find the small teapot and the other day, I found 2 cup and saucers to match. Didn't buy them, I just wanted them for serving dessert that has strawberries in it. I can just picture serving some type of strawberry pie or dessert in them.

    Betty, actually, they ARE part of the OCR line. The backstamp says Royal Albert Old Country Roses Seasons of Color, and they're dated 2006. There are quite a few complementary styles in the Seasons of Color line, all made to coordinate with OCR.

    Here's a link to a collector's page that shows the Seasons of Color/Colour plates: http://www.royalalbertpatterns.com/series%20pages/Seasons%20of%20Colour.htm

    The site is for Royal Albert collectors, but there's a huge section for OCR with lavish photos. icon_eek.gif

    Enjoy! icon_smile.gif

    As far as I know, they ARE dishwasher safe. The Royal Albert/Royal Doulton website says this (and this is a cut and paste directly from the website):

    "Washing in a Dishwasher. China can be washed in a dishwasher at a maximum temperature of 149F. The "Short Wash" or "China and Crystal" cycle is sufficient for normal cleaning. Do not overload dishwasher; load china securely on racks so that the pieces do not touch each other.
    Washing by Hand. When washing by hand, avoid using scouring pads and/or abrasive detergents. Most stains can be removed by soaking the item in warm water before washing. Stubborn stains can be removed by soaking in a MILD bleach solution for up to one hour.
    Recommended Liquid and Gel Dish Detergents. Any liquid or gel dish detergent from a national brand.
    Recommended Standard Powders & Tablets. Cascade"

    Additionally, I've read elsewhere (although I can't quote the source, apologies) that it's best to avoid dishwasher detergents with lemon in them because they're harsher than the regular detergents.

    I wash all of my fine chinas in the dishwasher, with the exception of the 1920's set, but on the "china and crystal" setting.

    So the question is....why do you say they have to be hand washed? Am I missing something important?? I would really appreciate any info you can share! Thanks! icon_smile.gif

    I thought I had read somewhere that bone china could not be washed in dishwasher..I'll pass that information along to my friend/former neighbor. Am I understanding the instructions correctly, they do not recommend using the dishwashing powder? But gel will be fine..that makes sense.

    Betty (and anyone else who's interested)...just found the Chubby Bunny S&P set on clearance on the Royal Doulton site for $8.70! You can find it here:
    http://www.royaldoulton.com/US/Gift_Ideas/Shop_Collection/Old_Country_Roses_Gifts/Table_Accessories/OCRFLG22599/Chubby+Bunny+Salt+%26+Pepper

    I don't know how much shipping would be, but probably less than driving around to several stores. icon_wink.gif

    Please indulge me and let me share my latest OCR finds! icon_smile.gif

    Royal Albert "Ruby Celebration" teapot and 8" plates:





    Also found a few good deals on the Old Country Roses pierced giftware, and picked up a platter, teapot, and vase. Do I need two teapots? Well, no. icon_redface.gif But they're pretty!



    Also stumbled across a set of 4 of the napkin rings at Marshall's the other day. Hoping I can luck into another box of 4 somewhere down the road. icon_smile.gif

    Thanks for letting me share, my husband and sons are SO not interested. icon_sad.gif

    Oh, how pretty, love the all-over motif with the ribbons, will make some stunning 'scapes. I might try to get to the mall & see if Macy's has any on display.
    Looking forward to some pix of all your new "stuff" being used : )

    Beautiful photos everyone!!!! I agree about the OCR glassware. It just looks cheap next to such a lovely china. With all the detailing in the china a simple clear goblet with a gold band looks lovely but doesn't take away from the china.

    So the question is....why do you say they have to be hand washed? Am I missing something important?? I would really appreciate any info you can share! Thanks!


    There are a couple of reasons for hand washing bone china and crystal, especially the older sets. The most obvious one is chipping. Secondary to that is the gold or platinum banding. Dishwasher soap can damage/remove the gold band. Depending on how high your water heater is set and if you dishwasher heats even further, the water could be entirely too hot for old china.

    I have a cup and saucer in OCR. I think it's a beautiful pattern, but this one little item is enough, and it sits proudly in my china cabinet.
