Tea Cup Tuesday-Antique Shopping for Tea Cups


Hello All!
Welcome to Tea Cup Tuesday!
Today I was lucky to visit a great antique shop.
And I thought I would share with you some of the tea treasures I saw there...
Once again, I used my phone to take these images so I apologize for the fuzzy look.


Beautiful chintz! All shapes of plates, little tea and dessert sets, even this beautiful box.
As I am looking for a tea cup, this one really caught my eye. I adore the pattern.
It is one of those tea cups where the plate is oblong and one can put a dessert.

Isn't this the most gorgeous color! I think this one was the Shelley Melody.
Another very lovely tea cup!
I have it in yellow at home.
So sweet!
Could you image having the entire set?


 Royal Winton, Marion.....such a gorgeous breakfast set! I wish I could have snapped a better image, but it was high above me (I am 5 feet tall...) and I had to hold the camera above my head to get a pic.


Lots of pretty plates....


More gorgeous dishes!


I am sorry I don't remember the name of this pattern,
but I am sure some of you do...
Update: Yes! Maria A. tells it is Coaching Scenes by Johnson Brothers, Thank you Maria!
It really looked lovely all spread out together.
I love this tea cup, but do not collect blue and white. (Just can't collect it all! lol!)
So I will keep looking.....


I spotted this Lefton "Green Heritage" large tea pot.
Beautiful, but not on my list today. 

I did find a tea cup, a real sweetie!
I will share it next week when I am home.
Bryant Antiques is located at 120 Swannonoa River Rd.

Tomorrow....Tuesday...
Is my 54th birthday.
I am pretty excited about it.
My hubby's gift to me is a couple days in the artsy city of Asheville,
Such a wonderful town to visit for art and antiques and great food! 
Thank you dear hubby for your lovely gift!

Thanks so much for stopping by for a visit. 
I hope you are having a very good week :  )
Hugs,
Terri

If you would like to join in with Martha and I in our tea cup fun,
just go and create a post with your tea cup to share and then come back here 
and sign that specific post up below with Linky Tools and we can 
come and visit you!

Wishing you a very happy birthday, and what a wonderful place to vist for your special day!

That chintz ware just sends me. Thanks for sharing!

KathyB. said...

The teacups and teapot are eye-catching and worth lingering over. I especially love the minty greens even though blue and whites are my passion. I can't wait to see the teacup you chose.

I think the gift of time in city perusing antique shops and anything else that strikes our fancy is a wonderful gift. Happy birthday Terri !

Acorn to Oak said...

Lots of pretty things. That's the biggest set of transferware I've ever seen. Wow! And, that teapot is gorgeous! Looks like a fun shopping trip.

Have a wonderful birthday!

I think I would have lost my mind [and my wallet] in that antique store!! What gorgeous chintz, other china patterns, and Depression glass.
Happy Birthday! Have a wonderful time in Asheville. It's such a great place. ~ Phyllis

Elaine said...

Beautiful china, especially the Chintz which is right up my street as you may imagine, I think I am lucky enough to have something in all those patterns you show in my collection, lovely to see so much in one place though. Have a wonderful birthday and a lovely trip, it sounds like a perfect and thoughtful gift from your hubby. Elaine x

happy birthday and what a pretty gift
lovely antiques and very pretty china

Maria A. said...

Happy Birthday, dear Terri!

I guess you felt like Alice in Wonderland in this china shop!!!
Like you, I find the chintz patterns gorgeous, specially in that aqua green ground.
But you know, the blue and white set all spread out on the table? It's the same as my first tea and coffee sets which I got as a wedding present and the ones I've used more often :). The pattern is "Coaching scenes" by Johnson Brothers.
Have a great time in Asheville!
Hugs

On a day like this ...
the sun rises earlier
the flowers smells a thousand times better
the birds whistle their best song only for you
and the world looks a little nicer
On a day like this ...
there's only one word
to wish you a beautiful birthday
Congrats!

Love,
B.

Dear Terri,
Happy Birthday!!!!! May you have much joy and many blessings. A trip to Asheville is wonderful and I wish you the perfect trip.
(Wow, you are both young and tiny.)
They chintz you photographed makes me dizzy. I would love to have a house full. Or a room full. The mint one is really cheerful. What a great shop.
Again, HAPPY,HAPPY BIRTHDAY from Ruthie

Sandi@ Rose Chintz Cottage said...

Happy Birthday, dear Terri! What a gorgeous display of chintz! Swooning here. It would have been very difficult for me to leave that beautiful teapot behind.
I too am five feet. Wouldn't it be wonderful if you and I came with built in step stools? ;) Hope you have a beautiful day, my friend.

Blessings,
Sandi

Lavender Cottage said...

Happy Birthday to you Terri, enjoy the promised outing.
I've never seen an antique store so well stocked, especially with chintz. I would have had a great time browsing in there.

Mrs. Sarah Coller said...

Good morning! Looks like you had a wonderful time in that little shop. I love the green and pink tea pot...it would go perfect with the Limoges display I've been working on the last few years! Thanks for the party! Hope you're having a happy day! This week's Homemaking Linkup is up and I would love to have you join, if you haven’t already.

Blessings,
Mrs. Sarah Coller

Veronica Roth said...

Happy birthday, my new tea cup friend, and many happy returns of the day. I wouldn't have been able to resist that Lefton tea pot; I love that celadon colour, especially in spring. :)

Antiques And Teacups said...

Hi Terri. What a great place to shop! I especially love the Shelley Melody of course. It only came in the green colorway so if you have a yellow teacup it's probably Summer Glory with lilacs or hydrangeas...there are discussions about that.... I would be a frequent visitor! Thanks for sharing the wonderful adventure you had!

Betty Stapleton said...

Oh my gosh, I don't know what I like best, in my post I said that chintz isn't seen as much anymore, that's because it's all in your antique store. Love it all, and that teapot the green one at the end is beautiful too. God bless
Oh and Happy Birthday...
