Tea Cup Tuesday-Gorgeous!

Hello All!
Welcome to Tea Cup Tuesday!
This week I have one of my favorite trios to share with you. We have seen many really beautiful Forget Me Not tea cups over the past weeks. I love each one. I only recently found a set for myself and I am delighted!
I adore the multi blue flowers and the shape.

I found this set in Williamsburg, Va. at a beautiful shop called High Cotton. This shop was featured in Victoria magazine recently and prompted my visit to the area. The shop was incredible, and I had such delight looking around, especially when I spotted this set tucked away in a hutch! The generous gold trim really caught my eye!

A fancy split loop handle with a spur.

The handle is all gold from this view.

This white set is generously decorated with beautiful bouquets of flowers.

Such vivid shades of blues and lilacs.

This is a high footed cup, and I think Gainsborough shape
....please correct me if I am wrong.

Royal Standard is an English company located at Stoke on Trent. This company was owned by
Chapmans Longton Ltd. The back stamp came into use around 1949.

Thank you so much for stopping by to visit today. I love having you over!

If you have not yet entered in my Happy June Giveaway, click HERE to go to the post that lists all 4 of my giveaways. Enter for each one, or just the ones you love.
I will be picking the winners June 30th.

Martha and I love hosting this party about tea cups, because we get to share something we appreciate, and because we get to meet with all of you!
If you would like to join in the party this week, go and create a post with a tea cup in it and then come back here and link up below. We have a new linky system this week and we hope all goes well with it. Let me know if you have any difficulty and I will see if I can help.

Hugs to you all!
Terri

My post today is more about my Mom's Birthday and little to do with tea (other than a picture of us having tea) so I won't be linking up this week...however...this teacup is so so pretty. I usually never find one that has the matching dessert plate and my mission is to find a trio! This cup has a certain elegance that I am drawn too...I love it!! I wish you a Happy Tea Cup Tuesday!! Feel free to link this treasured jewel up. Best to you ....Have a GREAT WEEK!

Terri -

This is such a lovely set. I also love how the gold seems to be stippled/feathered out into the white area of the cup and saucer near the rim. Just beautiful!

Oh my goodness, what a stunning set! No wonder you are so proud of them. I would want to sit in a Victorian dress to sip tea and eat scones from these treasures.

Terri, I just love forge-me-nots, and this set is lovely! In fact, I think I'll have some tea now...you just put me in the mood. I sweetly admire the dash of pink amongst the blue flowers - very delightful.

Hi Terri,

My, what a beautiful post cards. I think I should be creative as them. Should give a try. Btw, your forget me not teacup is so sweet. I should look for one. Thanks for sharing.

Lynn said...

Hi, I came by way of Trish's Tea party and am late! Your cup/saucer and plate of forget-me-nots is charming. Yes, the colors are very vivid. Love the gold edging. I also peeked at the post right ahead of the tea party one, so many creative artists out there doing crafts. Delightful selection of wonderful teacup they have created. Thank you for sharing lovely posts. Blessings.
