Tea Time: New Tea Cups

Rachel gifted me with two new tea cups for Mother's Day.  We found them at our favorite local store, Fresh Vintage by Amy, in Strasburg.

 There are so many things to love about this tea cup.

The colors, that ruffled edge

 The faint mark says, "Prussia" on it.

I love the unique handle.

This one is striking with the green color.

It has a delicate embossed detail at the bottom of the cup.

I love the beautiful pattern on this one.

 I love Johnson Brothers patterns.

Pretty handle too, even if it is out of focus.

I haven't posted any tea related things lately.  One of my Royal Albert teapots got a crack in it near the handle and now is only on display, instead of usable.  

I'm linking with other Tea minded ladies

The green is so fresh for spring! I always note handle design, too, but was most surprised to,lesrn that finger are never supposed to go through tea cup handles. Crazy! I plan to visit a tea house in June so am trying to get my act together!

Those are beauties. I don't know anything about collecting teacups other than saying England on the bottom and France 's Limoge.

The first tea cup is certainly unique and I'm sure there's a descriptive name for the handle, very nice MD gifts.
I hope you enjoy some nice teas in your new cups Deanna.

Very pretty! I have a few of my grandmother's old teacups. I'm not sure of their markings, but it is fun to use them for tea :)

Great additions to a collection. I am imagining how fun they will be to use. Visiting from Bernideen's

Lorrie said...

Such pretty teacups. The handle on the first one is so ornate and unique, along with the ruffled edge. Any tea will taste elegant from it.
