Welcome to Tea Cup Tuesday once again!
I have been away in England this month and soon to be home. My hubby and I have been truly enjoying our time here. England has so many lovely spots to visit. Winchester is a one of them. I picked up this tea cup trio at a open air market there yesterday.
I was drawn to the gorgeous green design and the lovely bouquets. I picked it up hoping that it was in good shape and was delighted to find it blemish and crack free.
It has a sweet angular-ish loop handle with a spur.
The plates have a pretty slightly scalloped edge.
This sweet trio was created by Royal Crown Derby. I have never owned any RCD china before. I have seen it in shops and drooled over it, and now I am thrilled to bring this set home.
Royal Crown Derby manufactures fine quality Bone China in Derby, England. They can trace the beginnings of their company to 1750. Queen Victoria gave them the honor of using the word "Royal" in their name in 1890.
I have been lucky to enjoy a cream tea on this trip. Don't these scones looks delicious? They are gluten free, and yes, they were delicious! It was a real treat!
I have continued to be unable to post on most of your blogs. I have seen many of your tea cups over the past two weeks, but I have only been able to comment on a few. Blogger keeps asking me to log in, but it doesn't accept it. I remember hearing some of you mention this difficulty before, and I am hoping that it is repaired soon. Oh, and I am also having some strange spacing problems, as you can see by this post.
