Dainty little cup…

My father in law brought me this dainty little tea cup last weekend.  I am so touched that he and his wife think of me when they are out antiquing and pick these three footed tea cups up when they come across one.  It makes me feel extra special!  This one is so pretty with the gold accents and the bold purple flowers and green leaves.  There are numbers on the bottom which is rare in my collection of tea cups and even match which is fun and exciting too! The scalloped rim of the top is so delicate, it makes me wonder how these cups survived years of use.

Thank you for coming to look at my newest addition to my three footed tea cup collection!  This collection of mine is definitely a favorite to share on my blog! xoxo, tracie
