SUMMER FUN WITH TEA CUPS!
Hello Ladies: Welcome to Tea Cup Tuesday No. 124! Hope you are all have a wonderful summer. Can you believe we are almost in August? Where does our time go? I had a virus this past week that left me very dizzy. Thank God I am feeling better. I have had the two visitors for Japan here and I have had to keep going. The little girl, Ericka, and Noah get along very well. Noah tells me he can speak Japanese now. He babbles away to Ericka, she smiles or laughs and he thinks he is talking Japanese. It is so cute to watch.
I have some fun cups to share with you this week. I know everyone is very busy and I appreciate you sharing our party during the summer. My first cup is a Royal Albert. It is called "Somerset" it is part of the Country Fayre Series. Love the vivid colors of the fruit on this cup. The tea pot is a vintage, Lefton, Hand Painted, Pink Roses. I have the whole set of this pattern.
Cup No. 2 is a R.K.W. Bavaria, Germany. They are know to have made some of the finest Porcelain pieces during the time period. It has beautiful details with gold accents. Both the handle and rim are gold trimmed. The demitasse cup is very well made with a quality that surpasses anything that is made today. I have the regular size tea cup to match this set. I don't think the pictures do this one justice.
This last cup is a Florentine, Made in England. This cup is very full with crazing, however, I just love the dainty look of this fine cup.
Here is Mr. Linky for this week. Thank you for joining Terri and I this summer.
Have a wonderful week! Hugs, Martha :)
