Table Setting with Spode, Chinese Rose

Welcome to the 190th Tablescape Thursday!

Greetings!  For this week’s Tablescape Thursday, we’re stopping by Cornelia’s beautiful home in Switzerland.  Recently, Cornelia prepared a wonderful table setting to share with friends and family for Good Friday.

Elegant table setting with Spode Chinese Rose

Cornelia said, “I set the table with Spode’s Chinese Rose.  Chinese Rose is the most popular and long-lived of all Spode patterns, and is derived from the Spode INDIA pattern which was copied from early C18th Chinese KANG HSI porcelain by Josiah Spode in 1813-15.”

“In Switzerland we all eat chocolate eggs and bunnies. This one is filled with gianduja-stracciatella chocolate. Delicious and hard to resist, especially when they are made by one of my favourite chocolate maker, the Swiss chocolate maker Laederach.”

“The cutlery is silver by Jezler (Switzerland), the pattern is called Reed. The teaspoon is a different pattern by Jezler, it is called Lilly of the Valley.”

    Hi Susan, I always enjoy seeing Cornelia’s beautiful collections and her home, too. The flatware is so delicate and I clicked to enlarge one photo to see the teaspoon better. My Mom’s flatware is Lily of the Valley also, but by Gorham and now retired. Thank you for bringing us this table and hosting such a fun party. Linda

  5. What a beautiful table! I am so happy to see the details in that amazing china. I wonder how many special meals, gathering all around the table, this china has served. Susan, it’s been a while since I’ve been able to participate but so glad to be back! Thank you for hosting.

The two large bunnies look as if they are standing guard to make sure no one eats the chocolate ones!! 🙂 Thank you Susan, this was delightful.

  20. I always love to see Cornelia’s tablescapes…its like I get to travel to Switzerland…for FREE! Her beautiful china reminds me of some that my 90 yr. old sister-in-love has in FL. Very pretty! I also LOVE the deep blue Meissen vase that she arranged her tulips in. Such a special piece! Thank you to both of you for sharing all these exquisite items…oh, & I forgot the chocolate!!!! I had a friend whose DH traveled to Switzerland freq. & she would share the chocolates that he brought back. WONDERFUL!!!! Hugs, Rett
