TEA CUP EMERGENCIES! TT 23!
Hello Tea Cup Ladies! Hope you are all doing wonderfully. I have some different cups to show you this week. Three trios, all Depression Glass. In fact all three trios are a sets of at least six with dinner plates too! One never knows when an emergency could arise and you need pink dishes. It could happen to anyone! All of these dishes will mix and match very well. So I can easily serve at least 18 people in a pinch. You can't say, I am not prepared for a Pink Emergency! I am embarrassed to say, I am prepared for quite a few "color" emergencies! (I know, therapy!)
Before I show you those trios, I will start with a Limoges! It is a Theodore Haviland, from France to be exact! The manufacturer that makes my heart do flip flops. This cup has a faded look to it, as if they wanted it to look old when they started. It is so dainty. It is a low, London Shape cup with a loop handle brushed with gold. The old rose design is on both the outside and the inside of the cup. Both sides are also brushed in gold. This cup is this week's favorite, of course! This cup is part of a dinner set. I should have showed you the trio, but I was lazy. They are stacked in with my other Limoges sets, in case I have a "pink rose" emergency. It could happen! One must be prepared. Don't laugh!
Now for the trios. All these beautiful depression glass sets have a name. I can never remember them so I am just going to call them Pink 1, Pink 2 and Pink 3. They are all just a little different. Pink set number one has a pretty Adelaide shape cup with a simple loop handle. Every piece is a pretty round shape.
Pink Set No. 2 is Hex shaped. It has a beautiful flower border on all edges of each piece. This cup has a round shape with a square French handle. As you can see, all the sets can easily work together.
The last one, Pink No. 3 has these pretty little V Shape cuts on all the edges of each piece, including the tea cup handle. It is a round shape with a pedestal bottom. The square French handle has the little V Shape cuts all over the handle.
I know these are a little hard to see, but I wanted to let you see a different style of tea cups.
Guess what? I am going to be featured on Beverly's Pink Saturday Blog next week. I am a little nervious because I am not sure if other ladies will like anything I post. You ladies, are my friends so, you already know the silly me and like me regardless. Anyway, I just wanted to tell you. I love Pink Saturday and to be featured is just so exciting. Beverly has one of those maga blogs. I feel honored.
You know what to do with Mr. Linky. Please don't forget to visit Terri at http://artfulaffirmations.blogspot.com/. She is back from her vacation. I missed her. I know I usually show you a tea pot at the top of my post, but I wanted to show you a jam jar. In case you have not guessed it, I collect them!
Have a great week! Blessings, Martha
