Nineteen years ago I chose this china pattern and the stainless steel flatware pattern (silver needs way too much care--this is Reed & Barton's 1800). It is much more traditional than what I would choose now, but it has its charms. It is Marlborough Sprays, by Spode. It is heavy china (thank goodness, I am not known for tender care of my things), with a greyish cast to the white background.
I use it a couple of times a year, along with the heavy tablecloth and napkins. While I am tempted to sell it and buy a simpler pattern, it would be easier just to continue on with this.
