Chintz Tea Cup

So this tea cup is one that I picked up  at an estate sale A few years ago I began collecting mismatched dinner plates.  At an estate sale, I came across a beautiful set of chintz porcelain china.   This set was individually marked so one wouldn’t need to take the entire set that was available, which for me was perfect because I only wanted a few pieces.  So I snatched up a couple dinner plates, serving pieces and a couple tea cups with saucers.  I adore the sweet floral pattern on the edges & the gold of course that is still so clear shows me that this set was in pristine condition!  Although I believe the pieces I have aren’t worth much, but I love them anyway! Take  a peek at the pictures below.
