Paragon - Chatelaine

Here is another gift that I received one birthday.  It was one of my first china tea cups.
It has a petit point floral pattern that is really quite beautiful!
There is a lot of details on this cup. 
There are different pink and blue flowers ... and one little yellow one on the saucer!
Here is the pretty floral decoration on the inside of the cup.
The cup and saucer have a lovely fluted design.

The back stamp indicates that this cup could have been produced any time after 1963 until the Paragon name was discontinued (1992).

  5. This is such a sweet teacup, Tara! I have been looking through your previous posts and you have some beautiful pieces! I too love the Lavender Rose. Mine had belonged to my mother who passed it on to me when she down sized. I had started the pattern for her when I was first married and worked in a jewelery store. Now, I get to enjoy it! Thank you for stopping by for a visit today.
