Tea Cup Tuesday-New Cup!

Hello All!
Welcome to Tea Cup Tuesday once again!
I have been away in England this month and soon to be home. My hubby and I have been truly enjoying our time here. England has so many lovely spots to visit. Winchester is a one of them. I picked up this tea cup trio at a open air market there yesterday.

I was drawn to the gorgeous green design and the lovely bouquets. I picked it up hoping that it was in good shape and was delighted to find it blemish and crack free.
It has a sweet angular-ish loop handle with a spur.
The plates have a pretty slightly scalloped edge.

This sweet trio was created by Royal Crown Derby. I have never owned any RCD china before. I have seen it in shops and drooled over it, and now I am thrilled to bring this set home.

Royal Crown Derby manufactures fine quality Bone China in Derby, England. They can trace the beginnings of their company to 1750. Queen Victoria gave them the honor of using the word "Royal" in their name in 1890.

I have been lucky to enjoy a cream tea on this trip. Don't these scones looks delicious? They are gluten free, and yes, they were delicious! It was a real treat!

I have continued to be unable to post on most of your blogs. I have seen many of your tea cups over the past two weeks, but I have only been able to comment on a few. Blogger keeps asking me to log in, but it doesn't accept it. I remember hearing some of you mention this difficulty before, and I am hoping that it is repaired soon. Oh, and I am also having some strange spacing problems, as you can see by this post.

If you would like to join in on Tea Cup Tuesday just go and create a post with your tea cup in it and then come back here and join in your post with the link system below. Martha and I are always trilled to see what you are sharing with us all.

Thank you so much for coming by to visit today.

Droolingover that cup, too - and those scones. Gluten free, you say? Is it your recipe, or did you find a bake shop that makes such lovelies gluten free!? Very unusual shade of green - looks very St. Patrick's Day to me - and the flowers are sweet! Sure hope you post more photos and adventures in England!

Hi Terri!
What a lovely new treasure you found in England! I would certainly have bought it, had I seen it somewhere.
The colour and shape are beautiful and the doily under it matches pefectly. Congratulations!
I've got some Derby porcelain and also RCD that I've already posted in my blog.

Hello Terri! What a gorgeous teacup set...Oh, yes, the green is perfect with the beautiful bouquet. There's so much loveliness going on in that design.

I'm happy to hear you are enjoying your stay in England. I was in Winchester back in 1983..We stayed in a hotel right next to the cathedral, and in the morning I looked out of my window to see the cathedral, old arches, mist, and doves cooing...it was like being back in time. Perfect.

God speed,

Marie said...

Hi Terri - I'm so jealous of where you are right now. England is absolutely beautiful, hope you're having a great weather there.

I also love your beautiful teacup set. Love the colors and pattern. Enjoy your stay in England!

Hi Terri, Beautiful tea cup, the scones look delightful, and I enjoyed the photos you shared of England in your latest post. So glad you had the opportunity to spend time in England and glad too that you are sharing it with us. I don't know if you "know" blogger Martha from Lines from Linderhof...she also spent quite a lengthy vacation in England recently and has some delightful posts as well. Have a great week, and I'll see you for Tea Cup Tuesday!
