Welcome to Tea Cup Tuesday...
A day to celebrate tea time with friends and pretty tea cups!
Halloween is only 8 days away...already!
My decor choices are turning darker...to black, and gold.
So I went to my china cabinet and pulled out a cup I often use in the fall.
She is black, gold and beautiful on the outside!
And light and feminine on the inside....lovely gold gilding.
Oh, and some floral art as well....
...Beautiful with a little poesy of roses and wildflowers... so romantic in such a dramatic cup.
I do swoon over the gold pretty detail!
(this image shows off her high footing)
...and around the saucer...
She wears a simple gold handle, just the right size and shape for a comfortable hold.
The backstamp on the bottom is clear...this cup was manufactured by Collingwood.
Collingwood Bros., (formerly Collingwood and Greatbatch) china company began in 1887 and used only an impressed mark of their name until just around 1900, when they began using printed marks.
They were situated in Longton. Stafforshire Potteries.
This mark above was used between 1937 until 1957.
You can also see a little pink smudge in the center. It almost looks like nail polish.
The large gold "P" interests me and an initial search through books and Internet
did not reveal anything to me. Boo hoo!
I recently finished a special necklace for a friend.
Next post will show you all about it...
but Beware...it is a little creepy!
