VTT - TEACUPS


I'm joining Suzanne at Colorado Lady again this week for VTT! Last time, I believe it was Fitty who said she wanted to see the teacups I received from the stash of a friend moving back to England. So, here they are!

These two cups don't have matching saucers. The one on the left is unmarked, the right one is Hammersley.

I just love cup handles! Many of them are painted so prettily. (Note to self: do a post on cup handles!)


This trio is not a matched set. The cup & saucer are a mark I'm unfamiliar with (see next photo). The bread plate is Limoges. I'm going to put them on my Etsy shop soon.

Here's a close-up of the trims. The right one is the Limoges.

This teapot, which I already listed on Etsy, is from Price Kensington, England.

Hi Sue,
I'm certain that tea tastes better from lovely cups and saucers. The china teapot is very pretty.

I could not read your description and details as it was not in English. I think from the photos the cups are very pretty.
