Unexpected bargains

While out window shopping with a friend yesterday, I came across some pretty crockery bearing the very design I am collecting. Needless to say, I brought (... I mean bought) some of them home :-) Here's part of the hoard...
First, I was taken up by the very unusual shape of these decanters which came in 3 sizes. I got a large one to use as a teapot...


and a medium one as a creamer. I also found this cute little jar I thought will do great for my sugar...


The cup and saucer came in a slightly different colour (more pinkish brown than pinkish purple). Unfortunately, I couldn't resist the unique shape of the saucer... so I picked up six of each :-)

Here then is the set I put together. The other half of my hoard? Let's leave that to another day, shall we? :-) Have a good weekend!

Hahaha... it does, doesn't it? It doesn't really match (on second thoughts) so I think I'll use the cups & saucers on their own...
