Hi Ladies: Did Tuesday just sneak up on you? It did me, Tea Cup Tuesday No. 27, and I am still thinking it is Sunday night, instead of Monday night. If my dear friend Terri had not sent me Mr. Linky, I would have been late again. I feel like I have missed so much on everyone blog these last few days. I know I am still running late, but better than last week! I have to get my act together! Please keep praying!
I am going to share some very different cups today. The first one is a Black and White and Gold cup made by Clarence China in England. It is No 52 of only 460 made. I love the Quatrefoil shape cup that sits on a pedestal. Clarence China, commonly made Chintz designs. This is a rare design for them. I just love how beautiful the Black and White looks.
Cup number 2 is another rare cup. It does not have a saucer, I don't know if it ever did. It is another hand numbered, hand decorated piece. This is by Lenox. It has a Fragonard shape with an angular handle all hand done. This is my favorite piece this week. I love the heavy gold they used on this cup.
Cup number 3 is this beautiful Limoges, Faberge, demitasse cup. The cup features a Victorian couple, in period attire, in a natural outdoor setting. This beautiful cup is a Royal Blue in color with a ribbed shape cup. It features a beautiful broken loop handle that is very common in Limoges cups. The saucer is scalloped with hand painted gold flowers to match the cup. I decided to put this one up for auction on Ebay today. Don't know why except, I need to start making Christmas money to tell you the truth. Another reason may be that I watch "Hoarders" today. I need to prove that I can get rid of my things, if I want too!
The very last cup I want to share is new to my home. It was purchased Friday for $1.49 at the Thirty Store. I just love Limoges. (I know I have said that hundred times.) It is by Theodore Haviland Limoges to be exact. I just love the faded look that Limoges does and the beautiful scalloped cup and saucer. It is just stunning and you can't beat the price. I don't think a girl can have too much Limoges, do you?
Well, you know what to do with "Mr. Linky". Please don't forget to visit Terri, and her amazing cups. Let me know if you want to be a part of my give away. Have a wonderful time at the party! The very first picture is the new blue and white colors of my house this month. Just thought I share a peek! Love you! Blessings, Martha
