Tea On Tuesday: An Unusual Tea Cup


 Over the years of collecting tea things, Tim has always encouraged me to find the unusual ones.  It makes my collection unique, so I have some with feet, I have some old ones, I have some with tartan on them.

One I really wanted to find was a black tea cup and about 16 years ago, when we were away on an anniversary trip, I found one.  

I find it unique that it has a luncheon plate and not a traditional saucer.


 




 The floral pattern is beautiful, too.

I'm joining Bernideen and Sandi again today.  I hope you'll take a look at these fun parties.

  1. I also have a black tea cup. Never would have bought it, but I take good care of it because it is most unusual compared to the others. Your set has a special name, which I have forgotten. I think they are wonderful for parties when people are not all able to be seated at a table.

  2. This is really quite beautiful. I love the black with the floral design and how it's off center...very unique indeed!

  3. I love this one. I don't remember seeing it....but perhaps it is the photography that is grabbing my eye this time. I've always loved black with any pretty color!

  4. What a treasure! I love the floral design!
    My step son gave me a set of tea dishes that have the plate instead of the saucer! They are Japanese. I'll be using them tomorrow for a high tea at lunch time for the quads!
    I so enjoy seeing your pretty things!

  6. Very pretty and a nice addition to your collection! Black teacups are striking and a bit uncommon compared to white teacups.

  9. It's a beauty, Deanna! I love the roses too; very unique. I have a black and gold one that my brother gifted me with for a shower gift years ago. Thank you for sharing and Happy Easter!

  12. That is lovely, Deanna -- very unusual! Blue Danube calls that type of plate and cup a "snack set" -- I have six of them. Bought them in remembrance of my mother and think of her every time I use them.

  13. My mother and mother-in-law had those sets - called Hostess Sets here. Your black teacup is striking with the pink roses. Very pretty.
