Tea Cup Tuesday-Halloween Storm


There is a blustery storm outside!
I had thought that hurricane Sandy had done her worst here in Raleigh.
But I was wrong...tonight she is blowing strong!
We have been lucky though, as I have seen the coastal areas are really getting hit hard.
I wish each and everyone safety...until she winds down and is no more.

 (The last few days of wind and cold hastened the trees color change.
and the last of the roses are still standing tall and cheering for all to hear!
But brrrrrrrr....it is getting chilly outside!)

For now...
Welcome to Tea Cup Tuesday!
It is our Halloween tea today as tonight is the night for all good
ghoulies and ghosties to go door to door for a trick or a treat!
I think I would take the treat!

I am sharing an all time favorite Old Country Roses...
In one of my favorite versions...


Billowy bold roses.....


Edged elaborately, beautifully with sponged gold.


And a fully gold fine shaped handle is perfect for holding comfortably.



It is the gorgeous generous beauty of the red and yellow roses that take my breath away!
Oh gosh! Listen to me being all romantic about a porcelain cup! lol!!!


Here we see on the backstamp that she was manufactured by Royal Chelsea.
New Chelsea Porcelain Co began in 1912 and continued until 1951,
when it changed it's name to New Chelsea China Co and continued until 1961.
They did not move locations, and the books I have do not give reason as to why they changed names.
We are also lucky that this backstamp also tells us the pattern name "Golden Rose".
Looking closely at the anchor, I can tell by it's design this one is from the newest company and was most likely made between 1951 and 61.


Happy Halloween Everyone!
And to those of you who do not participate in this holiday...
Happy Fall!

Be safe and be warm : )
Hugs,
Terri

Hello Terri, I'm feeling a little concerned for you with such a terrific storm about. Hope you and your American follower keep safe.

A gorgeous teacup and an amazing spiderweb you have shared - very "Halloweenesque!"

Thank you for co-hosting.

Praying for the storm to subside, and praying for all who have been affected.

Kathryn Ross said...

As always, Terri, a lovely selection and how complimentary to your opening shot of the trees and roses! The same pinks and gold tones - so lovely! However, I must say - I could have done without the spider at the end. Just sayin'.
Joy!

Johanna said...

Hi Terri,
you are not to enthusiastic with this cup, it is truly a beauty. I love Old Country Roses but this is much nicer than the RA standard pattern. Really a treasure. Your roses in the garden looks fantastic, even one can see the cold weather at the picture. We have it very cold now, also. Just the right time to decorate and enjoy tea at home. I also wish everybody safety with this storm.
Best greetings, Johanna

Dorthe said...

Dear Terri,
I hope all is well in your surroundings,also today.
Your beautiful little cup, should be used sitting near the gorgeous rose you shows from your garden-so lovely.
A happy Halloween to you too Terri,-
Many do not celebrate here, but I have my window filled with pumpkins and little Halloween fellows from US friends :-) and love it.
Hugs from Dorthe

Maria Andrade said...

Hi Terri,
The roses on your cup are beautiful, so detailed and with a magnificent gold!
I also loved seeing the roses in your garden and that Halloween touch of the spider web was a good shot!
I wish the storm will pass without affecting people's lives very much.

Hugs

As always, your teacup is so beautiful and the pictures on your post are worth lingering over.The roses with the autumn leaves in the background show the variety and beauty of the season's foliage. Roses blooming, autumn leaves ablaze.

The teacup is so pretty.

I hope you fare well with this storm.

Terri, gorgeous teacup! Amazing gold with the roses. Quite elegant! Happy Halloween to you, too. Love the Autumn color and the spider web! Guess I forgot you are in Raleigh. My god-daughter and her hubby moved there in July. I haven't visited yet ... but I will! :D :D Happy Tea Day and thank you for hosting!

Beth said...

Terri, thank you for posting my link. I hope the worst of our storm has passed. Though many folks have days of recovery ahead. (So far we just have a very messy yard! And one of the awnings on my shop got ripped off.)
I loved the Royal Chelsea cup and saucer you are featuring today. I had never seen any before that I remember. Now this is my second I have seen in two weeks. They are stunning.

Lucille said...

I love the sponged gold look on this cup!

Brenda said...

I love the Old Country Roses; in your yard and on your tea cup. That splash of gold just makes the cup look elaborate! This cup could make anyone feel all romantic. It is gorgeous. I love the photo of the little spider.
Happy Halloween,

Dear Terri,
Thanks for organizing your tea cup tuesday despite the storm. This is very comforting, reassuring, suggesting that people seek and find the resources to cope with difficulties.
The cup of today is magnificent, as all yours :-)
The roses always create a magic and marry beautifully with gold and fine china :-)
A big warm hug from Italy

Hi Terri

So good to hear you are safe and sound, it sounds as if it has been a scary and difficult time for some. What a beauty of a cup, that one calls for a very special blend of tea to fill it and a dainty cake to accompany it maybe. Keep warm and cosy and I hope there are still some autumny leaves to enjoy when the storm has passed. Elaine xx

Victoria said...

I am loving the rich deep tones in your cup today, so perfect for fall!
I adore flowers, so they go with any season for me, they are one of my feel good items! Hope the storm has calmed down for you and you are safe and sound.

Crazy for Tea Time said...

Hi Terri -- what a lovely tea cup. The roses with the gold detailing compliment eachother beautifully. I have a Royal Chelsea tea cup, it's quite pretty, but no match for yours! It just goes to show how diverse patterns can be when they're made by the same company. A little something for everyone. I hope you and yours are safe and sound despite the mega storm that walloped the East Coast. --Lucinda

Hello, Terri...

Your cup/saucer certainly is romantic, and I can understand how you can get all "gushy" over it...col...

Hi Terri! I hope everything is good on your end. I'm hearing nightmare stories. And they are having a marathon in New York???? Sickening!

The cup is so cute. Roses are such a classic.

Antiques And Teacups said...

I am sorry to hear about another storm! I have always loved Golden Roses. It actually predates Royal Albert's Old Country Roses, and some say that's where RA got the idea from in 1962. Have a great week!
