Tea Cup Tuesday!

Welcome to tea!
I am having some delicious English Breakfast with some scrumptious gluten free cupcakes, chocolate of course!

Yea, it's time for tea again!
I am late tonight because I was waiting for the sun to come out. Instead it stormed all day. So I took these photos tonight. I apologize for how dark they are


I want to thank all of you who participated last week. We had so many sharing their china that it took me two days to see everyone. Thank you so much for showing us your gorgeous tea cups!

My cup today is vintage, but not antique. It is made by Paragon, a very famous china company, known for many beautiful patterns. I am sure many of you have at least one Paragon cup, if you are collecting.

I love the peachy pink color. The gold trim is really lovely too.


The backstamp seems to suggest it was made in the 1950s. Paragon has been around since 1919 and had many changes of hand as did most china companies. It was also located in Stoke-on-Trent in England. It has been a part of the Royal Doulton group recently.


If you would like to join in Tea Cup Tuesday, just fill in the two blanks below on Mr. Linky and you will be automatically added to the list.

Thank you so much Martha for being my partner in this fun venture. Make sure you stop by and see Martha at Martha's Favorites. She always has beautiful china to see.

Thank you so much for stopping by!
Hugs,
Terri
