Pressed Glass Plates For Kings & Queens

My newest collection is pressed glass plates commemorating royal occassions. These were made in England as inexpensive souvenirs, and they are actually still quite affordable. I particularily love the plates and bowls from Queen Victoria's Jubilee in 1887. I am hoping that the British residents of Shanghai in the early 1900s left their plates in China, and I will find these at the flea markets in Shanghai!
The winner of Flea Market Style Magazine and a handful of vintage treasures is Leah.

I'm sure you will find some real treasures that will catch your eye in China. I'm also fond of all things royal - it must be from growing up in the Commonwealth! God save the Queen, the snarky old coot.
