Tea at The French Estate

I had the privilege of attending tea at The French Estate in Orange given by Lisa and Bonnie Ackerman of A&P Antiques & Collectibles in Old Towne Orange.  Lisa gave a lovely and very informative talk on China from the table and cupboard.  I learned a lot about china and porcelain including about a company I represent, Belleek!

 Apt words.
