"COUNTRY MEADOW" QUEEN'S Cup and Saucers

I recently pulled a stack of old Victoria Magazines out of the closet to look at this winter.  As I opened the Summer 1988 issue and saw an article about the Rose Tree Cottage Tea Room in Pasadena (their first location).  My eyes fell on a picture of Edmund Fry serving tea with "Country Meadow" English Bone China.  I recognized the tea set because I have some for sale in my store:


Here was the magazine and article below:






  We have already sold the teapot we had and a creamer and some of the cups and saucers:
