Tea Cup Thursday...umm Saturday

     Hello everyone, sorry it's been so long. I've relocated again for the winter and got really busy, so busy that in the near future my dear friend "Lady R" will be sharing some of the load with her wonderful collection of teacups and tea pots. It's wonderful to have a friend who shares interests  near and dear to me.
    This beautiful tea cup was found at one of my favorite tea shops down here - Teapots and Treasures in West Palm Beach. I was taken by it's rich green color and the profusion of gold leaf. The shape is lovely as is the handle. The gold trim adds a "bling" quality to it.
                                             I love the little rose almost hidden inside the tea cup!
                                                        The saucer itself is breathtaking!
                               The blue rose in the center of the saucer echoes the rose in the cup
               As you can see this is an Elizabethan cup and saucer made of fine bone china in England.
Here's a lovely cup and saucer that I also purchased at Teapots & Treasures here in West Palm Beach. What could be better to  drink my tea in than a cup filled with my favorite flower...the rose!!
                                                                      Such a pretty set!
                                                 See the lovely triple garlands on the saucer
This sweet tea cup was made in England of bone china by Queen Anne. It is a product of Ridgway Potteries Ltd. and the pattern number is 8543
