Soon to be added to our ebay store is this pretty vintage Paragon tea ware. It was produced as a souvenir for the 1930 birth of Princess Margaret Rose.
The flowers featured are Marguerites and Roses, as well as an adorable pair of budgerigars that embody the “Two for Joy” theme. The budgerigar is also known as a parakeet and nicknamed the budgie. “Two for joy” was the inscription on Princess Elizabeth’s commemorative 1926 china pattern which featured a pair of magpies. Two magpies were observed at the church during the baptism of Elizabeth thus inspiring the quote.
