But right now I have our kitchen absolutely packed. Packed to the brim. The cupboards are bursting.
This is unfortunate, since I realllly, realllllllly, realllllllllly want a set of this...
How fabulous is this?! For Titanic's 100th anniversary, Royal Crown Derby has reissued the original pattern used in one of the ship's restaurants. The china is being made the exact same way (hand painted), and even in the same place, as the originals were.

Spode also has a Titanic reproduction china, based on the original pattern used aboard the ship. They currently call this pattern "Lancaster." You can find it on Replacements Ltd.

The Titanic Store also has reproduction china from various restaurants on the Titanic. Also check out this link, which shows most of the patterns used on board. Pretty cool, but I just love the Royal Crown Derby pattern. Gorgeous!
