Sweet Tea Cup…

This sweet little cup cam from my grandmothers collection of tea cups.  No, it’s not a three footed one, but it is sweet!


I love the gold details and the embossed scroll’s on the pedestal of the cup – so dainty.


The character of the embossing along the side of the cup is so different than other tea cups that I have or have seen.


I adore the colors in the floral décor on this sweet set.


This tea cup is one of the few that has markings on the bottom. Both the tea cup and saucer match one another.


Thanks for coming by and taking a peek at my tea cup I wanted to share with you today!  Please do share if you have any knowledge of this tea cup…To see where I may be linking to this week – please check my “Cottage Links” label…

xoxo, Tracie

Such a beautiful tea cup! I love the dainty flowers. And even though it doesn't have feet, it is a footed cup. The gold detailing is lovely too.
