I bought this piece at the Mackenzie Childs warehouse sale last month. It was very inexpensive (Only $13.00!!) and I immediately knew that I could place a checked platter on top or use it as a candlestick. It's original purpose was to be a "lamp base", but for some reason they were selling a variety of patterns of these.
Many years ago I purchased this yellow "Honeymoon" serving bowl. It is one of my favorite MC dishes and perfect for a salad, chips, or even stew. I used some "putty" to adhere this bowl to the lamp base. It's not permanent, and can be removed quickly without leaving any marks on the pottery, but it holds it securely.
This piece also looks unique with a Courtly Check charger on top!
I have quickly set the table for an impromptu lunch.....
....layering my "Taylor" pieces...
...with one Courtly Checked piece, because a little "black and white" is needed everywhere!
Taylor pieces are now only available at the Mackenzie-Childs Aurora store !
I am often asked if I have a favorite pattern from the Taylor series and each time my answer is different. It depends on my mood, the food I am serving, the weather outside
they are all my favorite!
