Royal Albert English Chintz hostess set
The Royal Albert china company is celebrating its centenary and is dipping into its archives to celebrate, reproducing designs such as this English Chintz hostess set.
The set has a typically 1940s look with its dotty and floral pattern and gold trim. It's also got a generously sized plate with plenty of space for a dessert to go with your cup of tea. One of several hostess sets available, you can also get sets featuring designs dating from 1910 and 1970 though they all share the same traditionally chintzy look.
This set costs £30.
