Aynsley B3024

I found this lovely pink tea cup last year while garage sale-ing.
I love pink, so naturally, this one caught my eye.
I'll take you for a tour around the rim of this cup ...

... First you see the pretty floral decoration ...
... Then there are a few trees and a some birds in the air ... 
 ... What an interesting design!
Here is a picture of the back stamp on this tea cup; I think the number written there is B3024.  I checked the internet for some information.  One site stated that this back stamp was used between 1934-1950, and another site said that it was used in the 1920s and 1930s.
And here was the surprise I discovered once I brought this cup home:
The cup is not sitting on it's proper saucer!!  The pinks are so close, however, that I don't mind.

  7. Tara,
    Another masterpiece found at a garage sale. I love how you display and photograph your collection. Just wonderful and it is pleasure to follow your blog. Pink, however is not my favourite, I prefer green or brown shades with large handles.
