Teacup Tuesday

Hello everyone,

The wind has shifted and it has started raining. The weatherman tell us that the snow is not far behind.

Great weather to sit inside and celebrate Teacup Tuesday With Martha and Terri.

Today I wanted to show off this cup.

It is a Vintage Regency English Bone China cup and saucer. Made in England. Circa 1950'S from the little I have been able to learn of this company. Like most of my cups, however, I loved the bright floral design and cared very little if it came from a famous China maker.

The cup measures 3" high and the saucer is 5 1/2" in diameter. It's in excellent condition; and was a real auction score for only $1.00.

"There is a great deal of poetry and fine sentiment in a chest of tea." Ralph Waldo Emmerson

"If you are cold tea will warm you- -
If you are heated, it will cool you- -
If you are depressed, it will cheer you- -
If you are excited, it will calm you."
William E. Gladstone

Well I know you have to run and check out all the beautiful teacups. Thanks for stopping by.

Having been born in the UK, we feel that tea can cure all that ails one :-) A very lovely cup!

I love it too. You were lucky to find it.
I do find tea comforting, like the poem says.
Thank you so much for sharing with us today.
