Tea Cup Tuesday-Vintage Rosina


 Hello All!
Welcome to Tea Cup Tuesday!
Martha (of Martha's Favorites) and I have been hosting this tea cup hop since March 8th 2010!
We have just passed our two year mark!
Can you believe that Martha???

I began collecting tea cups when I was in my 20s. I loved the few sets that I had, but had to let go of most when I moved from Canada to the US. I began to collect again, slowly, once we settled, but with a young family newly located, there wasn't much money for such things.

Fast forward many years later, kids in university or all grown with kids of their own, and I am back into the swing of tea cup collecting. I counted over 100 last week!
I really thought I had only about 60! Yikes!
Of course, I am no where near Martha, Queen of Collectors! Right Martha?
Time to let more go! But not the two I am sharing today.....


When I began collecting in earnest a few years back, Rosina was my favorite to find. I found their designs very romantic. This cup above, with the two lovely roses, is "waisted" and "footed", as you can see.


 It also shows off lovely gold sponging...and if you have been following T.T. you know I love gold on a cup!
The scalloped edges also give this cup extra beauty!


The handle is simple with a mild thumb rest and some gold trim.


 Such a beautiful cup!


 Here you can see the Backstamp....and the makers tick as well as the pattern number B5072 (?)


 The second Rosina cup has more color with the added Forget Me Nots. 


Again, we see the gorgeous gold sponged scalloped edges.


The handle on this one looks to be exactly the same.


Here is a bit of a blurry image of the lovely flowers on the plate.


Very pretty flowers!


Here is the backstamp, it is the same one as the first stamp so we know they were manufactured around the same time period. The pattern number...3089 is not easy to read and it may be a 5 instead of a three.
You can see a sideways 3 by the word "Bone" and a Y by "China". These are the artist marks.

Rosina was a pottery in Longton, Stoke on Trent. It used to be the G. Warrilow and Son's Co. (which began in the late 1880s before it became the Rosina company in 1941.

Thank you all for stopping by!
If you would like to share your tea cup with us just go and create a post about it and come back here and sign up with Linky Tools below.
Martha and I always love to come and visit you!
Hugs, Terri

Hi Terri,
Your cup&saucers are STUNNING! I love the gold trimmed ones too. AND I also started collecting them when I was in my 20s. In those days there were NO BARGAINS either. BUT I must say the trill of the hunt was "So Much Fun". I DO remember asking favorite relatives THAT HAD HUGE china sets "If I could be HONORED by adding one of their sets to my collection"(I really can't believe I DID THAT!). No one EVER TURNED me down and NOW I have a little piece of them with me ALWAYS! They all smiled as they gave me a set, AND NOW I wonder if they REALLY DID want to part with them. But those lovely ladies are all now in Heaven "AND" I think of them all looking down at me as I have tea with "THEM"!
You made me think of this and I had to share it with you. I LOVE your collection...
Thank you to "You and Sweet Martha" for hosing such ELEGANT FUN each week,
Big Hugs to you,
Donna

Terri, your Rosina is GORGEOUS! I had to take a double look to make sure the sets were different. The splash of gold all around just sets this delightful cup and saucer to be enjoyed with style! I am finding more and more that I love the bigger roses. Having tea with you and Martha on Tuesday mornings just makes my day.
Have a joyful day!

Your Rosina teacup is exquisite! I love the shape of it not to mention the lovely roses and gold trim. She's a pretty thing for sure.

Those are quite exquisite. I must admit I have a fondness for forget-me-nots, os the second is my favorite. It is going to be hard for you to pick which to pass on.

debi said...

Oh Terri, your tea cups are exquisite! They both have such a beautiful shape, and I love the roses, and beautiful gold edging.

~*~Patty S said...

Hello Dear Terri ~ Remember me :)
I just had to play along in your lovely Teacup Tuesday because I could not believe we both used Rosina china cups for a Tea Tuesday post

Yours are divine...you present everything so splendidly! Your artistic nature shines through in everything you do...

the reason I do not join in your weekly tea challenge on a regular basis is I would not be able to visit all of the lovely participants and I would feel badly about that ... I find so many reasons to sit in this favorite chair as it is...if only I did not need to sleep at night ;)
