Tea With Helena

Time for tea with Helena now that Spring has really arrived!
I'm joining Sunday Favorites at Happy To Design



 Rosenthal "Helena" handpainted in the US Zone Selb Germany.
The US Zone mark identifies the date of manufacture 1947 to 1953.
Helena is the shape and it was decorated in hundreds of patterns and designs.




Helena plates also appeared on another tablescape here on TLRT.






The white creamer and sugar are also Rosenthal; the shape is called "Medallion."
















The tiered cake/dessert tray is a reproduction.






The little metal painted bird tray is from Pier 1.


Thanks so much for stopping by.

  14. Hi Candy...

    What a beautiful spring tea, my friend! Ohh my...the Helena pattern is simply gorgeous! Of course, I had to follow the link that you gave to see the fall tablescape where you used these pretty dishes! I love that the plates have a different floral scene on each! GORGEOUS! My friend, I just adore that pretty french tray with the sweet bird on it as well! I would love to have one like that! Hehe! I sooo enjoyed both beautiful tables, Candy...this lovely spring tea and the fall table where you showcased this pretty Helena pattern! Thank you so much for sharing it with us for the Sunday Favorites repost party this week!

    Happy Spring wishes,
