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 ...
