Tea Cup Tuesday-Already!

Hello All!
Is it just me or is the summer flying by???
Whew it is hot here, mid to high nineties every day.
Guess I will have to stay indoors and craft!
Today I am sharing a tea cup trio that I purchased in an antique store while in the UK this summer. I don't usually see trios, so this was a delight.
I adore the roses on this set! I have seen others share it and versions of it, but until now I had not had my own...now I do. Yay!

I love the dainty gold markings on the handle.

This cup is footed with two gold bands as trim.

The rims of the cup and plates are heavily decorated with a gold floral pattern.

These are the sweetest little roses! I also love the shade of green for the leaves.

Gorgeous plate edges! Using this cup makes me feel almost royal!

As you can see by the backstamp, it is created by Royal Albert, and the pattern name is Dimity Rose. Such a sweet name for such a sweet cup!
Here is a dear little vintage tea cozy I found in another little antique shop in the UK this summer. Isn't it sweet too?

It is quite small and would fit a 2 cup tea pot. I think it is adorable. I found another one while there and I will share it next week.

How are you all doing this summer?
Are you having a good one?
Are you having your tea iced???

If you would like to join in for Tea Cup Tuesday with Martha and I, just go and create a post showing us your tea cup(s). Then come back here and link up below. Martha and I love coming to see you and your china!
Hugs,
Terri

Terri,
My Japanese cup has a sticker and it is made by Lenwile China. The sticker is on both cup and saucer.

Oh so beautiful, love the pink flowers and all the gold! Makes me want to drink tea in my one and only tea cup

Julia Dunnit said...

Oh well done in getting that trio home! Royal Albert is still in production as far as I know. The gold leaf is applied by transfer - wet the carrier paper and slip it into position, sort of thing. I have a complete dinner and tea service of a Royal Albert pattern called Old Country Roses. Enjoy Dimity Rose, I think it's amongst their nicest designs!

Suz said...

Terri,
You found some lovely things in England. Thank you for taking me on a vicarious travel! I love both the tea cup and the cozy. I wonder if the shops there are rich with treasures or if these are a product of your good eye. Thank you for hostessing this. I am hoping to get a post up tomorrow.
Hugs,
Suz

Yes, the summer has flown by - the boys have been back in school for over a week.

Your Dimity Rose trio is so pretty and feminine. So is the crocheted (or is it tatting?) tea cozy. I love the varigated pink thread.

The temperature is very high here too, but I still prefer my tea hot.

Marie said...

Hi Terri - Looks like you had a wonderful time antiquing in the UK. Your teacup set is such a great find...very elegant and royal looking indeed. And love that pink tea cozy too. Someday, I'd like to go back to England and go antiquing myself.

I linked up to your party this week because I found a teacup with two handles. Not sure if it's a teacup so what better place to ask what this dish really is...your teacup tuesday linky party of course!

Happy Tuesday Terri!
-Marie

Createology said...

Your teacup is beautiful Terri. I adore your find of the tea cozy as it is such a labor of crochet work. Happy week to you dear...

Johanna said...

Hello Terri,
Royal Albert has always wonderful designs. I thought first it would be the Lavender rose pattern with additional gold decorations, but then I realized the different. I have never seen this beautiful pattern before. Thank you for showing us your treasures and for hosting this wonderful Tea Time Party.
Best greetings, Johanna

Hello Terri,
You certainly made wonderful purchases while you were in England!
The Royal Albert trio is beautiful and the way you photographed it also does it credit...
