Tea Cup Tuesday-Spring Growth


Hello All!
Welcome to Tea Cup Tuesday!
Spring is the time of year when growth is abundant...
The grasses, flowers, trees...everything alive is growing and blooming.
Me too,
I hope : )

My cup today is a new one to me, 
I found it on my trip to Asheville last month.
She was quite dirty, but looks much better cleaned up. 


 Plain Jane?
She wears pastel pinks and mints. There are several shades of these colors,
the plate being a bit more peachy pink than the foot.


Her handle is the the deepest shade of pink, and very lovely.
which I believe was meant to accompany the bright hues inside the cup.....


 Graceful brilliant daisies adorn the inside of the cup.
Truly a cup with "Inner Beauty"
: O


She was created by the Queen Anne company of England. 
A fine quality pottery owned by Shore and Coggins, in High Street and Edensor Works in the same place as many of the English potteries set up shop....Longton, Staffordshire, Potteries. 
This company was in business from 1911 until 1966.
This backstamp suggests a 1959 + date.

You can see her pattern number is 5854, which I could not locate online.
There two blue tics,which I think are artist marks,
maybe one artist did the interior art work,
and the other the outside?


Sharon, of Livewire Jewelry, sent me a gift of Adagio tea!
Which I was delighted about. 
I had the opportunity to choose what I wanted, 
and I picked this Gourmet set.  
To try something new...to grow...
Today I am having Oolong Goddess.
It smells like I am in China right now!

I also received some of their Chamomile...
AND it was very very good!
Thank you Sharon!

(finally back to drawing! Yay!...I am learn how to do hair...wish me luck)

Thank  you so much for stopping by today!
I am so glad you came by...I love reading your comments. 
Yes, I say this each and every time...but it is true.
You all enrich my life!
I hope where ever you are, 
You are enjoying Mother Nature's display of beauty and growth.
 
Hugs,
Terri

Hi Terri,
I love the different shades on your little cup and the flowers only on the inside. That one looks like such a little treasure to me. I don't think I've ever seen a cup like it. Very lovely. Hugs :)

Hi Terri,
Queen Anne in this shape is very elegant. I think I only collect this shape by Queen Anne.

It's your fav color and mixes well with soft pink and hot pink handle.

The daisies look so soft and it's like the flowing tea leaves in cup.

I hope you will make great progress with your drawing. I wish to learnt to paint too one day.

Love,
Felicity

I am glad you are back to drawing, and look forward to seeing more.

Good morning Terri,
When I looked at the pictures of your Queen Anne teacup, all I could think of was "this is very Terri!" The colors, the delicate balance of form ~ and it has a gentleness about it. Lovely.

Your drawing is amazing and I'll be looking for updates on your progress! Have a lovely, Spring week my friend.

What a gorgeous teacup you discovered! Isn't it wonderful when we have the chance to save these little works of art from obscurity and neglect? May every sip of tea you take from it bring you good health and happy memories.

Cool ! I like it.

Kevin Walls said...

That’s a nice selection of tea you’ve got there. Oolong is one of my all-time favorite tea, along with Jasmine; and I see you have both! Have you tried the Jasmine Pearls yet? Adaigo has a nice variety of teas in stock, though I haven’t tried most of them yet. I usually just stick with my favorites.
