Tea Cup Tuesday Pink!

Hello All
Welcome to Tea Cup Tuesday!
The one day of the week that Martha and I get to share out tea cups and hopefully get to come and see yours!
I am also showing a doll I just finished as well as a new Fairy School Tutorial video at the end of this post.
Today I am sharing a lovely pink tea cup and saucer.
This cup has a corset shape.

Simple loop handle with gold highlights.

This cup has been well used and well loved.

Love the gold leaf detail.

This cup was created in 1952 by the English company Anysley. How do I know the date? The number 28 below the stamp was part of a system installed in 1924 to help date the cup. You add the number below the stamp to 1924 and you get the year it was made. This is a handy system! The number 2225 is the pattern number, and the R may be the artist's initial. I know some of you out there are real experts on china, if I am wrong, please let me know.
I appreciate your help.

This is a very vintage looking poesy of roses!

And here is a prim doll I made as practice for a swap.
I have not made a cloth prim before, and I have never needle sculpted a nose! I did enjoy this project very much!


This little one is about 12" tall.
The pattern is by Back Porch Pickens at Pattern Mart and can be found here
She has painted on simple blue shoes, but with a sparkly addition...for added magic!

Thank you so much for stopping by today! I do so love it when you do!
I hope that you are having a very good January.

Hi Terri,

What a beauty of a cup! Love the pink and the delicate lines. It's a "sexy" cup. ;)

I have a couple of Ansley serving pieces that I use for crumpets and lemon curd.

Can't wait to post my second Tea Cup Tuesday post in a few hours.

Hugs,
Donna

Hi Terri - Your pink tea cup is fabulous of course, but I'm afraid I can't help you with the detail you're looking for. I love how delicate it looks, almost like a cotton candy.

I of course am loving your fairy doll, especially coz of the sign it's holding and the colors are my favorite.

Well, Terri...I actually woke up...and forgot about posting for Tea Cup Tuesday today...can you believe that? !
My readers were all asking me about a sketch that I was working on, saying they couldn't wait to see it finished..and well...I got my post done for that...and as I hit publish, I remembered that I'm on the Link List for Tea Cup Tuesday....so....


I did a second post!
Hope you'll stop in, if you haven't already done so!

after all of this tea talk, I think I need to go make a coffee!

ciao bella!

Terri, hi! Your teacup is lovely, lovely...The pink is very pretty, and of course the gold leaf and rose add just the right touch, not to mention the elegant shape. That really is a cool system for figuring out the date of the cup.

Your doll is delightful (but then all of your projects turn out so well). That swap should be fun. I am looking forward to viewing the second half of the fairy school video...I've been collecting items to make my own.

Have a wonderful day,
Marianne

What a beautiful posting! The cup and saucer are exquisite, and I just love the little doll. You did a wonderful job! Do you remember my telling you how I love Wedgwood Patrician? I found the coffee pot last week in a thrift store for $15.00 and it is in perfect condition. I now have one cup and saucer, 1 teapot with a small chip, and a perfect coffee pot (which may be used for hot chocolate. Oh for some tea biscuits, lemon curd and Devonshire cream!
