Tea Cup Tuesday-It's Beginning to look a lot like Christmas!

Hello All!
I am home now from my travels.
Visiting my family was wonderful, and seeing and holding my grandson was the best! 
Now, it is time for Tea Cup Tuesday once again!




When I first saw this cup, I wasn't sure if I liked it....It has very unusual coloring and design, at least to me.



The coloring is actually a little more yellow green than this, a really gorgeous color.


Footed, and simply adorned with one thin gold line just the they have defined the waist.


The elegant handle is highlighted with gold.
I would call this handles shape a modified Kidney shape, with a prominent thumb spur.


There is one single pink rose in the bottom of the cup.

The plate and cup edges sweetly scalloped and trimmed with gold.


The design is very interesting to me. Have any of you seen this type of style before?


This backstamp was difficult to read, but I think it says "Royal Bayreuth".


Bavaria, Germany US Zone. This cup was manufactured during World War 2. 

This company began in 1794 and was highly prized for it's designs by the Victorians. It's backstamp includes the Royal Coat of arms of Bavaria.

Christmas is fast approaching, and I am back in my art room working like an elf : )
I enjoy so much creating little gifts and cards.
My Jane Austen tree is coming along and I will share it again for Deck The Halls Sunday.
Thank you so much for coming by to visit today. I love having you over!

Had to sneak a peek before linking in, Terri - and how could you have questioned this cup I don't know - so lovely - especially the rose surprise at the bottom!
Now, as to the teaser about the Jane Austen tree - WHAT?? Can't wait on that! I'm saving my Jane Austen teatime for the new year - but your tree is happening in time for her birthday.
Joy!
