via – iOffer – Mayfair bone china shamrock tea cup and saucer.
I looked at several tea sets for St. Patrick’s Day. This is the one I’d pick this year. If I had the budget to spend on it. (I don’t).
Trilliums are the flower of Ontario. This would be a nice tea cup and saucer set too.
I like the poinsettia and Christmas rose (helleborus niger). I have a Christmas teacup and saucer with the Christmas rose, no poinsettia on mine though.
Offering a lovely pink coloured and gold gilded fine bone china tea cup by Aynsley of England. Featuring H.R.H. Princess Margaret set in a wonderful cameo picture on the interior of this commemorative set for her visit to Canada in 1958.
I don’t know if this information is correct, but it was interesting. I do like to read the label and find out where food has originated from.
HOW TO READ BAR CODES… (everyone must know)
ALWAYS READ THE LABELS ON THE FOODS YOU BUY–NO MATTER WHAT THE FRONT OF THE BOX OR PACKAGE SAYS, TURN IT OVER AND READ THE BACK CAREFULLY!
With all the food and pet products now coming from China, it is best to make sure you read label at the supermarket and especially when buying food products. Many products no longer show where they were made, only give where the distributor is located. The whole world is concerned about China-made “black-hearted goods”.
Can you differentiate which one is made in Taiwan or China ? The world is also concerned about GMO (Genetically Modified Organism) foods; steroid fed animals (ex: 45 days old broiler chicken).
It is important to read the bar code to track its origin. How to read Bar Codes….interesting !
If the first 3 digits of the bar code are 690, 691 or 692, the product is MADE IN CHINA.
471 is Made in Taiwan .
If the first 3 digits of the bar code are 00-09 then it’s made or sourced in USA.
This is our right to know, but the government and related departments never educate the public, therefore we have to RESCUE ourselves. Nowadays, Chinese businessmen know that consumers do not prefer products “MADE IN CHINA”, so they don’t show from which country it is made. However, you may now refer to the barcode –
Remember if the first 3 digits are:
890……MADE IN INDIA
690, 691, 692 … then it is MADE IN CHINA
00 – 09 … USA and CANADA
30 – 37 … FRANCE
40 – 44 … GERMANY
471 …….. Taiwan
45 or 49 ……..JAPAN
50 ………. UK
76………SWITZERLAND and LIENCHTENSTIEN
471……… is Made in TAIWAN (see sample)
629………UNITED ARAB EMIRATES
740……….745 – CENTRAL AMERICA
All 480 Codes are Made in the PHILIPPINES. Share it!
