fine china

This year for Christmas, my sister and I got my mom 4 teacups and saucers in the pattern she wanted to register for when she got married: Pembroke by Coalport. She said it was a very popular pattern in the late 70s and early 80s. Here are the 4 teacups in action - very delicate and pretty.

Instead of registering for Pembroke, when my parents got married they registered for the same china pattern as my grandparents - Vine by Royal Crown Derby. I think that it is very beautiful and classic - the gold glows in candlelight.

Speaking of my grandparents, my grandmother collected interesting china pieces - including this soup tureen now on display at my Aunt and Uncle's house. I would love to know what pattern this is, or what style china - I love the orange band! The "R" is also really pretty. Anyone know what this is?

So after all this talk of china, you might wonder what we registered for. We have registered for Republic from Lenox. I really like this pattern because it is gold and the pattern is not too simple or too busy (and I love the little red dots).
I would have posted photos of my future-in-law's china, but I don't have any! (I also don't know the name of it either)! They have beautiful china as well.
