This is a wonderful reminder of the civility and charm of days gone by. tea roses are a favorite of mine, and this pitcher is done so nicely with the blue and gold details. I don't know if Maple & Co. Ltd is still in existence, but the few times I have seen any of their dishes they have been extremely expensive ($300 - $600 for a single plate.) This is a beautiful decor item for your bath, your etagere, kitchen or the guest bath. I would not use it; just appreciate it.
