For a long time I’ve been looking to buy cream soup and saucers for my two best china sets. But the cost per unit is so high that even on sale I’ve not been able to get any at all. A cream soup bowl or bouillon cup has two handles and is a bit smaller than a cereal bowl. It comes with a matching saucer, called a saucer, liner or stand.
Just last month I visited the hospital thrift shop and found a vintage cream soup and stand in the Wedgwood Queensware “Edme” pattern, with its elegant embossed ribbed design. Also nearby were 3 dinner plates and 3 bread and butter plates. “The Edme pattern is a creamy porcelain with starburst ridge pattern on plates. Cups have vertical ridges and a pedestal foot. The saucers have a starburst ridge pattern. The Edme pattern was made from 1908-1997. Since I’ve been gathering white and off-white plates and bowls in a variety of patterns, I decided to buy them. Total cost was just $3.25. Since then I found another dinner plate and three cream soup bowls and saucers. I am looking forward to serving cream of broccoli, cream of potato, and asparagus soups in these special bowls.
Of course I am still hoping to stumble on bargains on fine china cream soups! Lenox “Autumn” Spode “Consul Cobalt Royal Albert “Lady Carlyle” Royal Worcester “Evesham Gold”

Welcome to Oak Rise Cottage, the Home of an Incurable Collector!
In this blog I will be sharing my ventures into the worlds of a collector with multiple enthusiasms. At Oak Rise Cottage there are collections such as items with pineapple motif, blue and white dishes and fabrics, tablesetting components, books in both regular and miniature editions, fruit motif items, Christmas holiday accessories, and so on...The pineapple evokes a hostess' love of sharing house and home with family and friends. Guests to Oak Rise Cottage share the collector's bounty -- based on my view that the house should express the personality and interests of the owner.
