Lady Beth

This is the 4th tea cup from my Auntie.  It looks simple on the outside, coloured a nice pale green...

Then on the inside there is the beautiful blue rose!

This is my first tea cup by Lady Beth in my collection.

Royal Anne - Autumn Glory

This is the 3rd tea cup from my Auntie.  I LOVE the bright cheerful pattern on this tea cup.  This one is sure to make me smile every time I pull it out!

Royal Crown Derby

This is the second tea cup from my Auntie.  I love the colours on this one ... it's not like any other tea cups I have in my collection.

This tea cup is produced by Royal Crown Derby.  This is my first tea cup from this company, so I did a little research on it.  It appears that this is the company that supplied the china on the Titanic.

My tea cup was probably produced somewhere between 1921-1964.

I just love this pattern!!

Royal Albert Numbered Pattern 6594

My Auntie gifted to me 4 beautiful tea cups that I will share in the next 4 posts.  This first one was produced somewhere between 1927-1935 I believe.  It is really quite beautiful and detailed!

This tea cup is a Doris shaped cup.  I love this shape ... so elegant.

Look at all the detail in the saucer ...

Royal Albert - Blue Blossom Jam Jar

A couple summers ago my husband and I spent a weekend in Nanton, Alberta.  We spent our time snooping in their many antique shops, having lunch the cutest teahouse and watching the fireworks to celebrate their ‘Nanton Days.’  

As a souvenir of our trip I found this great little jam jar.   I think I could use it for sugar too.   It is a Royal Albert piece and the pattern is Blue Blossom. 

The pattern reminds me of my Lavender Rose dinnerware by Royal Albert.
