It has been sometime since I've joined Terri of Artful Affirmations and done a Teacup Tuesday post - but not very long since I bought my last teacup. Just this last auction I went to I picked up this lovely one.
I love the softness of the roses on this cup. So delicate to behold.
Set with my rose FTD teapot it looks feminine and in need of my favorite tea. Don't you agree?
It is a Lefton Teacup .But I am not sure how old it really is. One day I must purchase the book about Lefton China.
For decades, Lefton has produced china that makes great gifts and collectibles. Lefton china was founded in Chicago in 1941 by George Zoltan Lefton, who had arrived from Hungary two years before. George Lefton admired delicate Oriental pottery and at the close of World War II he headed to newly occupied Japan to strike a deal to import Japanese made pottery under the Lefton name. The following year the first of these products arrived in the United States, bearing the mark “Made in Occupied Japan.” The quality was good and the price made the china accessible to most Americans.
Have a Wonderful Teacup Tuesday.
