Just like the scene in Downton Abbey last night. Sitting on the lawn taking tea... And here I am at work!
But think of Lady Mary so bored with nothing to fill her life, Joan! (And pre-internet days, when there was nothing to play with at work except paperclip boats!)
I can't stop looking at the lady in white. It looks as though she is sitting on a man's arm! Doesn't that look like a hand at the end of a shirt sleeve? I didn't enlarge the image, I was having too much fun thinking the lady is hiding a body.
Heavens, Darlene. Now you've got me thinking. I've enlarged it fullscreen and I think it might be the sash of her gown.It didn't strike me that there was anyone lurking under her chair when I saw it in the flesh!If Cornflower reads this, I wonder if she has the catalogue? I went cross-eyed peering at the teapot. Couldn't decide whether the blue bits were a reflection or a nice bit of enamelled decoration.
I found this painting on another site which showed it a bit larger. At first I thought the blue bits were decorative but the tray has the same hue going around the edge. Perhaps it's a sheen. The arm still looks a bit suspicious to me though!
If only you could have flown over for a proper look, Darlene.
