Tea Cup Tuesday-More Romance


Even though Valentine's Day is past,
I still think of Romance.

Especially when I stumbled upon these images of a cup
I gave away in a swap a couple years or three ago. 

Isn't she just the sweetest, romantic, upright cup? 
The rose buds are so dainty.
The pink so pretty,
her stance so prim!


She has a highly polished gold pedestal footing.
Notice the unusual gold vine or ? dividing the panels around the cup. 
It looks a bit like rose thorns. 

Interesting to depict the thorns along with the roses.
More like real life!


Adderley, a Stoke on Trent pottery,
created this tea cup somewhere after 1947. 
I have that idea as Ridgeway Potteries bought out Adderly in 1947. 
They retained the name "Adderley" and added the 1789
below the crown in the backstamp.
This one does seem to be one of their earliest stamps,
maybe even the first one?

Lately it has been fresh ginger tea for me.
 What tea are you having today? 
or coffee, or hot chocolate???

Our weather has turned fine!
Yay!
I am hoping you all have had a change in weaether
for the good, too!

Have a wonderful week : )

Hugs,
Terri

It is a pretty teacup and I love the way you point out details I might have otherwise overlooked. I do think the gold between the panels on the teacup are vines with thorns.

The weather here is wet, wet, and wet ! My ducks and geese love it. I think it perfect for tea indoors while admiring my ducks and geese from inside.

I think this is one of your prettiest cup and saucer sets. Those sweet little roses. And showing itself off on a GOLD pedestal.
Happy Tea Cup Tuesday.

Dear Terri,
This is such a sweet, feminine teacup and one I have never seen before. Interesting about the thorns. I think it is exquisite.
Have a gingery day, Ruthie

Terra said...

Terri, you are a true sweetie to have given this cup away in a swap. It is very romantic looking.

Hi Terri,

Linda said...

sadly I don't have a cup to enter but I can still enjoy your beautiful pieces Terri! So far today I have had a cup of Tulsi tea as it is very cold and -flurrying-again.

Elaine said...

A beautiful cup Terri, so delicate. So glad to hear you have better weather. Spring is on the way here too, blossom emerging and it is so welcome. Elaine x

Kathryn Ross said...

Blessings, Terri! Sorry about messing up with my thumbnail image. That's what comes of working too swiftly and clicking wrong. Boo.

I'm sharing a cup I won in Martha's most recent give-away - along with a book I won about the same time! A double teatime blessing!

Yes, I do love all the romantic details of your cup today - the rose seems very like many other roses I see on cups. Is there a universal pattern?

Be ye blessed with your nice weather - we have snow coming in again tonight.
Joy!
Kathy

Goodness that's a pretty one Terri and I didn't notice that there were golden thorns, but of course they are thorns. I have a couple or three Adderley cups and am really partial to that name because I lived on a road called Adderley for a few years when we first immigrated to Canada. Anyway, it's always a good time for a pretty rosy cup and Valentine's can be every day as far as I'm concerned. Hope you have a most wonderful week. Big hugs. :)
