Sorry for the blurry picture. I really love this Aynsley tea cup It is a turquoise and egg shell white border on the saucer with a beautiful gold trim. I like bright colors, they brighten the day! The marking on the back is C 979. If anyone knows what that means, please let me know. I put a question mark on the title because I've been rather tardy lately. I won't be able to post next week as I will be at the American Society of Botanical Artist's convention in Boston. It will be so exciting. Perhaps I can post some paintings when I get home. See you then!
