Lladro is gorgeous, but expensive. Grossly expensive. I was going through the Royal Doulton site when shopping, and stopped by the Wedgewood site which is owned by the same company. I was absolutely staggered by the cost of Jasperware (constantly mentioned in Regency books, and it seems it was the chic thing to own) and the prices there made my jaw drop. Certainly out of my reach, but very beautiful.

I am seriously considering this one for my holiday gift to myself. (I know, very selfish of me...) But out of all of the various royal wedding things out there, this has to be the prettiest, and tasteful.

Any thoughts? Or have I gone completely over the bend?
