Three footed tea cup…

Beautiful isn’t she?  ~  My mom and I came across this three footed tea cup during our adventure to Harrison Hot Springs recently. There are no marking other than “Made in Japan”!  The fact that most of my tea cups are mysterious ~ due to being unmarked.  Even with the use of the internet, there isn’t very much information available about Three Footed Tea cups.

Adding to my collection is becoming more and more difficult as these treasures are difficult to find.

What a thrill it is when I come upon a reasonably priced floral tea cup and get to bring it home!

I've collected teacups in the past, but never saw a three-footed one, very cool!

LOVE IT! The fact that they are hard to find MEANS no one wants to part with them... I think it makes finding one MORE EXCITING, doesn't it??? Like jump up&down excited...
Have a fun week,
Big Hugs,

That one is a keeper. Very pretty. I have been keeping my eyes open for a footed tea-cup. They are quite rare, I guess. Enjoy it.

Hi Tracey,
Your teacup is very pretty! I saw two three-footed teacups at an antique store a couple of weeks ago and I thought of you! I almost bought one but I bought my Bridal Rose instead. Hope you have a lovely first day of Summer.

Blessings,
Sandi

Just beautiful! I love the footed cups the best -- the Japanese ones tend to have that 'Mother of Pearl' look to them which I also love. Beautiful colors and I really like the little design inside!

I haven't seen one of these, Tracie. It definitely had to come home with you. You're right about these being hard to find - seems that china cups and saucers are a thing of the past now and it's only collectors who snap them up. This was a great find.

Beautiful teacup. I just unpacked my grandmother's teacups that I haven't seen for 18 years! I hope to share photos of them soon. . .
