Three footed tea cups…
I started my tea cup collection shortly after my Grandmother died (13 years ago). I inherited her collection of look but don’t touch tea cups she always had displayed on her pine hutch. Amongst the mix of tea cups were a few that were different than the others. I found that was the year I started antiquing and realized how hard to come by these types of tea cups are to find. Which is why the hunt for them is so much fun! I’ve collected some, been gifted a few my collection has grown over the years. However, when we moved from our old house to this one, the mistake of putting them all in the same box happened. Now I don’t know which were hers & which are mine. It saddens me a little to not remember who’s is who’s, but then again – I don’t have the philosophy of look but don’t touch. If it is in my home….it should be used! We’ve had glorious tea parties big and small using all of my tea cups – with so much sugar cubes in the girls cups that the spoons had to come up for air from so much sugar. Good memories!!! Now they sit quiet on the shelf awaiting a tea party for anyone who asks!
Wanted to share my collection with all of you who in hopes you think of me whenever you see a tea cup with three feet!
It fascinates me that these cups had a life before me, curious where they are from & who had them, would love to know the stories they hold secret.
I love all the shapes & sizes of the cups & only purchase floral ones. In all my years of collecting, I’ve only duplicated a “find” once & broke one in the move…
Thank you for visiting & please share with me what you collect & why it fascinates you?
