Alfred Meakin Dinner Service

R460.00 R276.00

We’re nearly at the end of this delightful Alfred Meakin dinner service – I honestly didn’t realise there were so many bits to it! Of course these plates and bowls are the bulk of it, and in my opinion the real prize! It’s quite unusual to find a relatively complete vintage dinner service – if you think about the rate at which plates break in your own house, you’ll understand why! Which is why it’s so impressive that bar one missing bowl (the larger size of bowl), this 1950s dinner service has all of its pieces. The silver trim around the plates and some of the bowls is a bit tired, with the wear on the dinner plates being the most noticeable, but it’s not so bad that it’s horribly noticeable. What you really take notice of is that lovely Lotus Island pattern with the bright pink lotus flower , silver palm trees and delicate cranes – I can’t stress how much I love this design! And while it is missing a bowl, it has two sizes of bowls to make up for, with a total of 23 pieces!

Dimensions: Dinner plates – 25cm in diameter; Side plates – 17cm in diameter; Soup bowls – 4cm deep x 18cm in diameter; Pudding bowls – 3cm deep x 16cm in diameter
