English Milk Jugs and Sugar Bowls

I have collected several small English Bone China Cream and Sugar Sets
over the last several years.  These are called Milk Jugs and Sugar Bowls in England.
Perhaps because milk is added to tea and not cream.
FYI - cream is too heavy for tea.  
The sugar bowls are no more than 3 inches in diameter and less than 2 inches tall. 
The creamers (or should I say milk jugs) are about 2.5 inches tall. 
They are various patterns and from different English potteries. 

You will recognize the Royal Patrician below from
the photo at the top of my blog.
I use these small sets when setting the table with different teacup and saucer trios.
Nothing matches, including the teapots, when setting the table this way.
However, all the pieces are pretty English Bone China.
The photo below is an example of my table setting for high school seniors.
I enjoy setting the tea table in this simple, but pretty way.
