Flower of the Month Series - Michaelmas Daisy - Royal Albert

Here is a saucer missing it's tea cup, but that's okay because it sure is pretty!

This was the saucer that went with the September tea cup.

This series was produced in 1970.  Each month was a different flower.  The flowers featured in this series were:  Snowdrops, Violets, Anemones, Sweet Pea, Lily of the Valley, Roses, Forget-Me-Not, Poppy, Michaelmas Daisy, Cosmos, Chrysanthemum and Christmas Rose

Small Paragon Plate - Tay 'San

Here is the second small china plate I picked up on our BC vacation.  It is also made by Paragon.

I saw somewhere online that this pattern was originally manufactured in 1981.  Paragon was owned by Royal Doulton at that point.

Small Paragon Plate - Tapestry Rose

While vacationing in BC I found a few mismatched china pieces for a great deal!  This small plate is really cute and cheerful!

It's made by Paragon between 1939-1949.  The pattern itself seems to have been produced over a number of years and has a variety of different backstamps.

Green Paragon Tea Cup

Here's another tea cup to share:

It is a beautiful tea cup that is missing it's saucer.  The lady had sold the saucers earlier, then found the matching tea cups!  I think this is a beautiful tea cup, even missing the saucer.  One day I'll find something that will work with it!  Simple white and gold on the outside ... and bright colours on the inside!

Here is the back stamp.  I didn't find this exact one online, but similar one to it dates a tea cup around 1939-1949.

Aynsley-Paragon Mix Match - Pretty in Pink

Here is the final 25 cent tea cup I picked up.  It is not a matching pair, but it does match quite well if you ask me!  I especially love the simple, yet beautiful tea cup.

This tea cup was probably produced between 1905-1925 based on this back stamp.  After all those years, she's lost her saucer.

But she was matched with this beauty!  The saucer has the same shade of pink and its intricate design complements her simplicity.

 I'm not sure when this saucer was produced ... some time after 1963.

Royal Vale - Pink and Gold

Here is the fourth 25 cent tea cup I found at that garage sale.  It reminds me of these Royal Stafford tea cups!

I can not find the date that this piece of china was produced

Royal Albert - Burgundy and Blue Chintz - Flowers

Here is the third 25 cent tea cup I found.  I love the deep burgundy colour and it's quite different from any other tea cup I have yet!

This tea cup is Malvern, I believe. 

The backstamp indicates that it was produced sometime in the 1960s or 1970s.

Oakley China Ltd - Clover

Here is the second 25 cent tea cup.  I really love the detail on this one and the unique shape.  Isn't the clover so cheerful?

I wasn't able to find much information about this china company except perhaps they were purchased by another company in 1992.

Royal Albert - Country Scenes - Dovedale

The other weekend we were going to a bunch of garage sales and we came across one with many beautiful tea cups.  They were being sold for 25 cents, so I nabbed 5 of them.  Here is the first one:

This Royal Albert Tea Cup shape is Montrose.  It is part of a series produced in 1980.  There are 6 in the series:  Bluebell Wood, Dingle Dell, Dovedale, Harvest Song, Primrose Hill, and Rose Cottage.  This particular one is Dovedale.
