Paragon G6072

Here is a saucer without it's tea cup!  I picked it up anyway, because it was not expensive, and I thought it was pretty.  I had a hard time determining the age of this piece, and thought maybe it was produced between 1939-1940.

Paragon 2277

Today I want to share with you a couple tea cups I found last weekend.  They are made of such fine bone china.  It is so thin and delicate.
Such a simple, yet beautiful design!

 A gold rim on the saucer where the tea cup sits.
Here are their back stamps.  According the the source I found online, this stamp was used 1903 onward.  I think it is the second stamp that Paragon used.
