Another Three Footed Tea Cup…
I went out on a search for the perfect Tea Cup for my “Tea Cup Trade” Partner, and during my search, look what I found! I always get just so excited when I find one of these treasures because they are so hard to find! Usually when I do find them – they are over my budget to purchase! However, this little beauty, was tucked behind so many others & when the shop owner dug it out for me to see it was priced at only $10. I didn’t even think twice about this purchase – “package it up” was the statement for me!
There still isn’t much history I can find on Three Footed Tea Cups, so if anyone has any info. to share – please do! I do know that they were mostly made in Japan and that they are not real popular with sales, so most antique dealers don’t pick them up when they see them. Which is maybe why the hunt for them is so much fun for me! Click here to se my collection & why I started.
I am linking up to several Tea Cup Tuesday parties!!! Hope you enjoyed my post today!!! xoxo, Tracie

I've been looking for these tea cups since your post and I still haven't seen any...I can see why you love the hunt. Have fun hunting for more and in the meantime enjoy your prize! Have a great day.

Happy Teacup Tuesday.
i'm sure Ruth, Antiques and Teacups blog, one of our TeaCup Traders, who deals in teacups as her trade, will help you out. what i know, having hunted for my best friend, is that they were the shower gift of choice for a certain time - maybe wartime?-not sure and were also giveaways for purchasing particular food products-maybe cereals?
totally luved your post :) Well Done!
and its a beauty.. the people running the sale did not know what they had! I know I really need to post my tea cups for you to see, since we LOVE our three legged cups..
