Tea Cup Tuesday












Hello, and thank you for visiting me today. Today is Tea Cup Tuesday and I want to share with you two cups that I recently purchased at the great Treasure Mart, when I first spotted these cups I lifted them up to see where they were made, there is no name on them, just numbers, the china is such a creamy and soft color china and the cups are so delicate, they both have the same pattern, but one cup is smaller and the cups are shaped differently. I love all the gold on them and I love the handles, they are so delicate, with clovers on them. The bottom of the cups are different too, they have a large lip. If anyone knows anything about these cups I would love for you to share with me. I love the beautiful flowers on them and the gold inside the cups too. I want to thank Terri and Martha for hosting Tea Cup Tuesday and please click on the teacup on my right side bar to visit the other participants. I hope you are having a wonderful week. Hugs, Terri

I love them! The handle is really special. English or German and 19th century...a treasure indeed!

Oh yes these are very special cups! I don't know the pattern or maker, but they are really lovely. It is interesting that they are not the same size, maybe one is meant more for tea and one for coffee? The design is so lovely. Definitely a fab find!
Thank you so much for sharing them with us.
Hugs,
Terri
