Dining Room Sideboard

For this week's Table Top Tuesday I'm showing my dining room sideboard. Right now, I'm using it to display some pretty demitasse cups inherited from my Great-Aunt Lottie and a plate and covered pitcher that belonged to my husband's parents. 
Here's a closer look at a demitasse cup and saucer.  The marking on the bottom is "Ebeling and Reuss American Artware."  I found some almost identical ones on eBay, but with a navy band.  Given the price on eBay, these have only sentimental value, but I love them.

At the other end of the sideboard is a platter and pitcher set marked "Ningpo Wedgwood, Etruria, England."  My husband's parents bought it many years ago and gave it to us recently. I love the colors and think it looks especially good against the red wall of the dining room. 
Thank you for visiting my dining room, and please check out the other links at Marty's Table Top Tuesday at A Stroll Thru Life!

  5. Thanks for visiting today! Your DR is so elegant, with your goodies displayed. I really like the prints above the sideboard, too -- very classic.


  6. Your sideboard is beautiful and the collection of cups and saucers is displayed so beautifully. I love that you placed one of them on a cup and saucer stand to showcase the pretty pattern. The other side with the silver candlestick, the plate and pitcher is just the perfect compliment to the vignette. Thanks so much for joining the party. Hugs, Marty
