KDF CELEBRATION TEA SET 2009
BY STOKESAY WARE
KDF Celebration tea set
We really do feel privileged to have attended every single Festival since 1985 and to celebrate we have made a special tea set based on our Jubilee Gold pattern to donate to the auction.
Using a technique called 'clobbering' we have overpainted the gold design in coloured enamels, lending a new dimension to this service.
'Clobbering' as a technique was employed extensively in the 18th and 19th centuries and continued throughout the 20th century as a method of embelishing single colour designs with coloured enamels and was used on both on hand-painted ware imported from the Far East and home produced printed ware.
   
KDF Celebration bread and butter plate The service comprises of a tea pot, milk jug, sugar bowl, two cups and saucers and two tea plates, and what makes it unique is the specially decorated bread and butter plate which is signed and dated by Karen on the back.

   
    Be sure to visit the KDF website to see the wonderful work on offer. We hope the auction is a great success and wish them all a Very Happy Birthday!
