Teatime Tuesday

 Welcome to Teatime Tuesday!  


Today I want to show you my most interesting tea cup.  It is a lovely soft aqua color and has really interesting details.


 Here is the marking on the bottom of the teacup - I've tried to Google this but am not finding it.  Any one familiar with this company?


 The saucer is just a bit darker in color than the tea cup.


 I think the details are really stunning - 


 It is very fine china - very thin...


 Loveliness...

I bought this teacup in Vermont about 2 years ago.  I don't use it often but I do use it.  It's just lovely.

I am having such fun getting to know new friends that love tea and all things tea related as well.

Thanks for joining me today - don't forget to visit Sandi at Rose Chintz Cottage for Teatime Tuesday.  And Lady Katherine's Tea Parlor.  
I am also joining Trish at Lily-Rose Cottage for L.A.C.E.

Nothing nicer than a cup of tea out of a beautiful cup.

I'm not a big tea-drinker, but I sure enjoy the beauty of fine tea cups & saucers! This is unusual, isn't it?

Such a pretty cup! It reminds me of a cameo!

Near as I can tell, your cup would date between 1907-1956. I believe the company is still in production today. I just Googled Rosenthal Bavaria China. you might try looking on Replacments.com - they have loads and loads of patterns, etc. Beautiful set!

Stunning is the exact word that I was going to use! Yes, I have seen other rosenthal pieces and they too had that creamy thick glaze look, and the raised detail. I LOVE it!

Blessings, Debbie

Hi Deanna,
Oh my, what a pretty teacup and in my favourite colour too! It is just beautiful with its lovely embossed design and shape. It does remind one of a cameo. I have never seen one like it. It truly is a delight to the eyes. I am so happy you have shared this with Tea Time. I am a new follower and it's very nice to 'meet' you. Have a delightful day.

Blessings,
Sandi

Deanna, that set is absolutely beautiful!
I love the colour and the exquisite pattern!
It reminds me a lot of Wedgewood - which I also love.
You have some very lovely pieces in your collection :-)
Thank you for sharing this for LACE today.
Have a blessed week..Trish

  I hope you all had a wonderful weekend. We spent Saturday, doing things around the house, and then we swam. Kyle and Sarah left after that...
