TEACUP TUESDAY





Today is Teacup Tuesday, and I got a very late start, working on tax things, I am so glad that tax day is just about over. This is my crazy teacup, but I really like how different it is. I have had this for years and usually I buy cups that are made in England, Germany, Bavaria, France. I have no idea where this cup was made, but I do believe it is really old. The gold along the brim is almost worn away. The colors in this cup are just beautiful with it's pink saucer. The back is rather plain, but the front is kinda crazy. The gold object sticks way out and I think that's what drew me to it. I also love the shape of the cup and the gold trim on it. It is very thin and it just has the number 46 on the bottom. Thank you for visiting my blog today and thank you to Martha and Terri for Teacup Tuesday. Click on the button and to go see the other teacups .

That sure is the craziest cup and saucer I have ever seen, lol, and it is magnificent!

Yes, Terri, this is a very unusual cup! I like it too, so different in shape and style, and that gold emblem on the front is amazing. I wonder where it was made? Guess it will remain a mystery : )

Hi: I think this is a handmade German cup. It is very valuable. I just love it, stunning. I am so glad you were able to join us again this week. It would not be the same without you. Blessings, Martha

Terri, I hope you discover its origin. I was thinking Japan. It reminds me of the gold on a Japanese creamer that I have. It's very unusual.
Don't you just love teacups! I can't drink tea from a mug. It must be a teacup! ;-) I truly believe it tastes different.
www.uptontea.com has some excellent teas! We love the Baker St. blend.
Loved your post!

Darling teacup!
I also came by to let you know that I'm hosting a swap: a Pretty Pockets Swap, and I would love to have you participate. Visit my blog for more details. :D If you're busy, I understand! It was worth asking to get a lovely (and talented) lady on board though. xo.
