Tea Cup Tuesday

I'm sharing some of the new treasures I found at yardsales this weekend for Terri and Martha's Tea Cup Tuesday.

I love this mini tea cup with the generous gold rim and sweet scene on the inside and out.


I just thought this cup would add to my pretty collection.  It has such a neat rim, and (though it's hard to see here) I fell for the palest pale blue background behind the flowers, above the double gold lines.

Saucerless, it still looked nice stacked on my two new plates.  I thought the square one was unusual, and below you can see the great detail of the cream plate.  I just love the dark silvery gilding, the crackles and the embossed edging.


Cheers! (I always want to say cheers on here, but thought it might sound silly.  Well now I've gone and done it so oh well.)  Hee hee!

Love all of your treasures but I especially love the one in the first pic! I have a few pieces with the same couple on them. I collected them because my hubby's grandmother had similar dishes!

Hugs,
Debbie
