Tea Cup Tuesday

Hello All!
Welcome once again to Tea Cup Tuesday!
I know, it seems odd to dedicate a day to a piece of china.......but Martha and I do it anyways.
Why? Because we love tea cups.....
not as much as we love all of you, but we do enjoy a pretty cup!

There is something about a yellow cup that is so cheery, so uplifting that it feels good just to drink out of it. This cup is one of those cups. Much more ornate than most of my tea cups,
this one is full of gold filigree.
I have filled this cup with my favorite Chamomile tea.

There is a split loop handle with a tiny thumb rest.

The top of the thumb rest has this tiny leaf design on it, and I love this little touch!

The flowers in the bottom of the cup match the flowers on the plate. They are a lively poesy of color.

This cup was made by Hammersly. This company went through many changes as most of the pottery companies did. It ceased to be a company in 1982. This mark was used after 1939. I wish I could narrow down the date. But for now....somewhere between 1939 and 1982.

Thank you so much for visiting today. If you would like to play along with Martha (please go and see her china too) and I, please fill in the two links below on Mr. Linky. Make sure your post has a tea cup in it that you are sharing....as this meme is about tea cups. We love coming to visit and seeing your beautiful tea cups!
Hugs,
Terri

Yes, yellow is special in a cup and I am not particularly a yellow person. This cup is lovely and Bone China makes it nicer yet.
