This little gem is from the same year 1887. It is unusual as the Queen's image is in profile put on a type of postage stamp with circular insets of Winsor and Balmoral castles. The rose, shamrock and thistle are present on the mug symbolizing England, Scotland and Northern Ireland.
Not quite a tea cup this Thursday but a beautiful glass dish commemorating fifty years of Victoria's reign from 1837 to 1887. I just love this dish, treasure it actually. The crown and laurel leaves are so lovely . I love the initials V and R as well. I hope you enjoy this.
