Here is a pair of simple, yet beautiful tea cups that I wanted to share today for Tea Cup Tuesday. I am joining Martha's Favorites and Artful Affirmations...thank you for hosting!
I found this great green tea cup at a garage sale (like most of my tea cups!). I liked the delicate leaf pattern against the simple green.
Then came the pink one. I found this one at an estate sale. The lady had a very extensive teacup and china collection, and it was difficult to choose which ones I wanted to take home. I thought it would be perfect to have a matching pair, so I picked up the pink one.
A quick search on the web showed me that there are bright blue, light blue and yellow versions of this tea cup. I also discovered there is a matching teapot. For now, I’ll enjoy my set of two! I read somewhere that these cups were produced in the late 1940’s.
Here are their back stamps:
