Welcome once again to Tea Cup Tuesday, which Martha and I have been hosting for a few years now...is that right Martha? She is good at keeping up with the number of posts we have had so far.
This blog hop has helped me meet wonderful bloggers out there who love tea cups as well and everything that goes with them. I am so glad I have met YOU!
And both Martha and I find much enjoyment in visiting your beautiful blogs, and seeing your gorgeous cups, hearing stories of how you came to have them, as well as seeing how you treat yourself to tea.
Thank you all so much for sharing with us!
This lovely cup is new to me, a sweet little unexpected find!
The coloring drew me to her first.
It is hard to get the coloring correct in an image, and this one was hard,
but it is close to her true color.
She is sweet with her sensitive blue coloring and darling pink roses.
Her simple, but gold trimmed handle is just right.
And her waist is also detailed with a fine gold line.
Here we see that she is a Crown Staffordshire tea cup.
The company began in 1889, under another name, Minerva Works, Fenton.
They began using this backstamp in the 1930s,
I could not find out what the L stood for.
I have just heard from Martha that she has hurt her back and will not be posting tonight.
Please keep her in your prayers and send her Love and Healing : )
She says she will post as soon as she is able.
We love you Martha!
