Tea Cup Tuesday-Yay!

Hello All,
and Welcome once again to Tea Cup Tuesday!
I am away this week (still) awaiting the arrival of my newest grandchild. 
My tea cup share will be short and sweet with this beauty of a cup.


This cup was sitting pretty on a shelf at one of the local antique stores not far from my home.
It really feels good in the hand, and is light and just the right size for a good cup of tea.



It is a footed cup, with a simple gold trim.
Lovey unadorned handle with split and thumb spur.

 The roses on this cup are really lovely. The photo did not quite capture the detail and texture of them.


Mayfair created this cup. I have looked up this company and did not really find any information. I saw Royal Mayfair, but not just Mayfair. I really must get some good sources for researching china!

I hope you are all having a fabulous week.
Thank you so much for stopping by.

Next Tea Cup Tuesday, I am sharing one of the new cups I have found on this trip as well as what I have done to the tea tray I picked up at Goodwill. 

If you would like to join in Tea Cup Tuesday with Martha and I, just create a post with a tea cup or two you would like to share with us and come back here to link that post with Linky Tools below. 
Martha and I would love to come and visit you too! 
We are so thrilled to have you included.
Hugs,
Terri

Terri, I excited for you in your anticipation! Yes, your cup is lovely, and I was thinking how realistic the roses look. They are beautiful!

Such excitement in your life! The teacup is lovely! The name of your teacup won't be in any china reference...yet. After the break up and closure of many manufacturers in the late 1980s, several smaller manufacturers bought up decals and began small operations. The most famous of those is Royal Patrician which closed in 2009. Mayfair, Crown Dorset and another I can't think of at the moment (must be over 35 LOL) are all from a manufacturer using some of the same decals and are still producing in the UK. We hope they make it!

I thought you would already be posting pictures of your new grandchild.They come in their own time, and that makes the waiting all the more special. I can't wait to read about your new blessing!

The teacup is very pretty, what a find! Thank-you again for hosting this teacup Tuesday, even though you have much more important things to attend. ( grandchildren are one of the best blessings in life!)

Hi Terri,
Another beautiful English tea cup for your collection!
I love these fluted shapes and the flower decoration is lovely!
I thought you'd be already announcing the arrival of your grand-baby, but I'm sure you'll soon be a happy and proud grandmother (like me) holding the little one in your arms.
All the best for you all!

Oh Terri, blessings and congratulations on the little man's arrival! I'm sure you're counting the days until you leave to see him!
I loved your posting and although I have a very modest collection of tea cups/cake plates, I love looking at your "Star of the Day" each Tuesday.

Your Halloween picture is simply adorable...I think one of the best memories of Halloween is the homemade costumes! Have a lovely week.
xoxo
