Here is a happy Autumn birdie.....
She rests on this pretty cup I am sharing today.
This is the back side. I don't know what flowers these are here...do you?
This is the simplest yet most elegant simple loop handle I have seen yet!
It was the little bird that caught my eye in the shop, and why I brought this cup home!
There are two florals on the plate, this red one....
And this pink one.
I am thinking it is almost time to buy a big pumpkin for the front porch, as these tiny ones are all I have at the moment. Just right for a tea cup.
This is the only cup I have from this company, C. M. Hutschenreuther. Carolus Magnus Hutschenreuther began his fine porcelain company in northern Bavaria in 1814. His sons eventually began another one not that many miles away. So there were two Hutschenreuther companies. I did not find an example of this exact backstamp online, I saw some similar. I have to guess that "Olivia" would be the pattern name and "63" would be the year manufactured. I could be so wrong : ). If you know this company I would love to hear more about it. I know there was a merger and eventually a buy out. But as with most china companies, the history is convoluted.
This year has passed so quickly! I want to savor every moment of it!
I am heading off to my son's home this week to greet my newest grandchild! When I return, it will be time for Halloween already. I do enjoy handing out candy to the little ones that come dressed up. They are the cutest little kiddies! Emma and Betsy, our two Yorkies, think the kids are coming to visit them!
I hope that each and everyone of you are well and enJoying this fall season.

Martha and I love to visit you and we love to see your tea cups.
Martha sells some tea cups on her website Pretty Vintage Things, a great place to look for gifts!
I found this tea tray at Goodwill for about $5. I am having fun fixing it up, and next week I will show it off! Yay! It will look much different. I wanted to paint it soft pink, but am changing my mind.
At this point I am not sure....we'll see : )
Thank you so very much for stopping by.
Hugs to you All!
