Teaware Patterns: Forget-Me-Nots

Let’s face it, floral patterns on various objects are very popular. Teawares are no exception. One of the most charming is the forget-me-not pattern, featuring that lovely, delicate flower.

About the Forget-Me-Not Flower

This flower (Mycostis sylvatica, from the ‘Boraginaceae’ botanical family) is a symbol of true love, loving remembrance, faithful love, constancy and undying hope. Find your true love and give him/her this flower! In addition, the flower was adopted as an emblem of the Masons in 1948 at the first Annual Convention of the United Grand Lodges of Germany, Ancient Free & Accepted Masons. They still wear it these days in the lapel of their coats to remember Freemasons who were victims of Nazis. There are also health benefit claims plus the claim that a decoction of the flowers helps harden steel.

All we know is that the flowers look gorgeous on a teapot, teacup, or other teawares, as you can see in this set below:

The Forget Me Not Fine Bone China Set and Pieces from the English Heirloom Collection

Each piece is fine bone china made in and imported from the United Kingdom, features dainty bouquets of blue forget-me-not flowers and white lily of the valley, has fine gold edging, and must be hand washed. They will certainly bring lasting love to your home! The Full Tea Set includes a 6-cup teapot, 4 teacups and saucers, and either an open or covered sugar bowl with creamer set, and has an option to add a set of four 8-inch dessert plates for an additional charge. These plates can hold a generous serving of your favorite treats for tea time! Or you can buy the pieces separately (less of a budget buster). The covered sugar bowl keeps out the flies, etc., especially when holding that garden tea party. There is also a 8”x4” serving tray available.

Time to steep some tea, bake some scones, and relax with a good friend or two or three for a lovely tea party!
