Tea Cup Tuesday-Roses!


 Hello All!
Welcome once again to our tea cup sharing party! Yay!
Today I am thrilled to show you a cup I found earlier this spring, but saved to show you now as it seemed like a perfect fall cup. It reminds me of the last roses of summer. My roses do poorly here in the hot summer heat and humidity, but when the cooler weather comes with September, suddenly they are happy again and blooming vibrantly. They will bloom for another month if we do not get a frost at night.


 There are so  many things I love about this cup. Firstly, the colors of the roses! 
Soon worthy to me!
Secondly, I adore the shape of the cup, can you see the unusual shape of the rim? Almost square.


 The two sides of the cup are decorated with roses, red on one side and yellow on the other.


 I love the color of both roses. Just right.
The leaves are my favorite colors of green.


This looks like a modified "7" handle to me. It has just a simple gold detail on it.

The other thing that I appreciate about this cup is that it is a trio! I rarely find all three pieces.
The leaves are my favorite colors of green.

The leaves are my favorite colors of green.
The roses on the plate, so lovely!

There are beautiful yellow roses on the plate too.


Here you can really see the shape of the cup.


The pattern name is Morgans Rose and was created by Hammersley in England.  From what I can find out about Hammersley, it began around 1887, but was bought and sold a number of times. Aynsley bought the name in 1989. I am thinking that this backstamp is a fairly modern one, so it is not more than 20 years old.

As the weather gets cooler at night here, it is lovely to have such a cup to sip from by the fire.

Thank you so much for stopping by today! Martha (Make sure you visit her as she always has the most gorgeous tea cups...and her vintage website has lovely items for sale!) and I are so thrilled to visit each of you and we love seeing your tea cups. So if you would like to join in this week, just go and create a post about a tea cup or two and then come back here and link that specific post with Linky Tools below.

In case you haven't heard yet, I have a new class beginning with Creative Workshops October 10th on Altered Domino Books. So I am having a giveaway of a Domino Kit to celebrate! Yay! Click HERE to enter in this giveaway!

A treasure of a teacup - and in such lovely shades of Autumn! You have taught me to not be fearful of oddly shaped cups - here is another example of molding artistry. I think of you when I see cups "outside the box"!
Joy!
