This cabinet used to be in our family room. Although I love the cabinet, I always thought it did not fit in the FR because it looks too formal and delicate and our FR is too rustic and informal. So, when John and I were at Red Door in Baton Rouge, we saw a cabinet that we thought would look nice in its place, we bought it and moved this beauty into our guest room that I reserve for my mom when she visits. Though my mom's room has simplier furniture, I think this newly moved cabinet gave the room more charm and it is safer there because it has less traffic than the family room. Besides, it is not always occupied because my mom rotates among us 5 siblings in 4 different states.
I thought of selling it at first but I couldn't bear to part with it so I searched really hard to find another place for it. This was before the cabinet was moved to my mom's BR. I had to slide the leather chair and ottoman to the left to make room for it.
At first, I thought I would display some designer purses there since it is a bedroom but decided to store some tea sets instead. After all, they have gracious lines and look feminine. I was able to fit a lot but it did not fit everything I have. Darn! I need another cabinet, lol.
How do you like it now? It also doubles as a night light.
The top shelf holds my Johann Haviland "Brown Rose" set, 2 Bavarian Tirschenreuth teapots, Tirschenreuth "Briar Rose" tea and coffee set, Myott "Hedgerow" pot and a hunt scene cup and saucer set.
The second shelf includes Hammersley's "Bird of Paradise" set, a Victorian set with a courting scene, Tirschenreuth Hutschenreuther Gruppe tea set, and Polish "Warvel" set.
The third row has Kent Pottery "Herbs" tea set, Royal Stafford "Enchantment" teapot, 222 Fifth green and white "Adelaide" teapot, a green and white Tirschenreuth Bavarian tea set and Tracy Porter's "Artesian" tea set
The bottom shelf consists of Spode's "Emma's Garland" tea set with a tray and vase and dessert plates, a gold and white English teapot set that I received as a 25th birthday present (I couldn't quite read the mark except for England), a Debbie Mum "Sakupa" china small bee teapot, another gold and white teapot I bought from an estate sale that says Le Roi 24 karat gold in the back and a fine china coral set made by Royal Majestic in "Seascape" pattern.
And there they are, a part of my tea set collection.
Thank you so much for allowing me to show you the cabinet and ma's room. I hope you enjoyed the tour.
A special thanks to our hostesses below for their fun memes. I hope you get to visit them too.
