    DH has been collecting it, says it reminds him of his grandmother's floral china.
    Do you have the large (9 1/2") rimmed soup bowls? Or the cream soup bowls with the side handles?
    I'll admit, I'm a tad amused by his latest 'hobby', but enjoying our new china.
    I need a new camera, but will join in posting pix of the different ways to use this beautiful pattern we've found so far asap.

    It is a lovely pattern, although all I have in it is a teapot.

    Here's a picture from the internet for those who aren't familiar - can't wait to see how you use this beautiful pattern. By the way, it is nice that DH is so enthused about china!!!! icon_biggrin.gif Jewel

    Cindee, I think this is one of the most beautiful patterns made. Unfortunately I don't own any pieces of it, but sure would love to.

    Please do post photos when you get your camera. I can't wait to see your tablesetting using it!

    This isn't a proper table setting but these are some of the pieces I use for tea.

    ooooooh! I love the little jam jar! The different style of your salad & bread & butter plates looks very nice too. Thanks for sharing. I have the large 9 1/2" rimmed bowls & the soup bowls with handles on order & am looking forward to using them during the holidays.
    Thanks for sharing bullwinkle, I'll look forward to more of your pix.

    warmly, Chef Cindee, CA

    Any time is Tea Time at my house (LOL).

    I am slowly collecting the pieces for my Old Contry Rose.
    It is a little on the expensive side so I only buy a few pieces at a time. It was really a surprise when my husband bought me the matching flatware.
    I am not to fond of their glass and stemware and I am trying to find something I like better.

    I just received a few serving pieces but I take terrible pictures so I will wait and have my husband take one for me even though he says his pictures aren't that great either.

    Bullwinkle, I agree about the OCR glassware. I'm using my (late) Mom's "King's Crown Ruby" stemware with our OCR dishes. The cranberry color looks very pretty with the china.

    Home Goods Store always has a good deal of Old Country rose dishes..I have a friend who has a wonderful collection of them, but won't use them because she has to wash them by hand, as they are not dishwasher safe.

    Hi Chef #501229! My DH actually chose the Old Country Roses pattern, it reminded him of his Grandmother's china, & he does all the dishwashing here! I lucked out!

    Wish we had a Home Goods store around here, I've never seen one.

    Can you share a photo of your stemware that you use with the OCR china? Being in a Home Goods Store is like being in a penny candy store..you never know what you will find there, and their prices are reasonable. If you see something you like, don't hesitate, buy it that day because if you go back a few days later even, it may not be there. Check their website for locations. Maybe there is one closer than you think.

    I'm also an OCR fanatic, although for me it's a recent obsession. I just started my collection in March of this year. I found a gorgeous set of vintage England-backstamped OCR, 12 place settings, and serving pieces, and hubby bought it for me after a rather nasty hard-drive incident. (He accidently deleted 8 years-worth of digital photos by formatting the WRONG DRIVE, so I'm not sure the china is enough payback. icon_evil.gif ) I lucked up and found soup bowls, fruit bowls, demitasse cups/saucers, and the accent salad plates through CraigsList, Ebay, and *gulp* Replacements.com -- the latter being a bit pricey, but you gotta have what you gotta have, right? icon_smile.gif

    The cute Chubby Bunny S&P set I stumbled across in a TJ Maxx for CHEAP (less than $10, new in the box, 1st quality).

    The rectangular dessert plates (above the regular plate) were included with the original set I bought. There are 12 of those, also, and I've not seen anything quite like them, even on Replacements.com. The lady I bought them from used to travel extensively, and she said she bought them in a gift shop in Hong Kong many years ago. I guess that was when Hong Kong was still under British rule, maybe. I love them, although I haven't had a chance to actually use them yet. icon_sad.gif

    I haven't found the perfect stemware to use, either. The goblet in the photo is my regular Gorham crystal. At Easter, I used some pressed glass tea goblets that I could throw in the dishwasher, but I'd like to find something really special to use with this set.

    Ok, I've babbled on long enough.....

    Hi! The stemware I use currently with our OCR china can be seen at Replacements.com, item #102841, Kings Crown Ruby Flashed. I have water goblets, wine glasses & sherbets. They belonged to my Mom, who used them with her English Transferware dishes.

    Your placesetting is beautiful dishdoyenne. Love those accent plates!

    Cindee, I would truly love to see a photo of your stemware with a placesetting of the OCR!! How fortunate that your mom acquired stems that work so well with your china. icon_smile.gif It's an elegant-looking set of glassware.

    The salad plate apparently is not OCR but it blends perfectly with all the colors in OCR..do you mind sharing who makes those salad plates? Beautiful, Beautiful!
