Mum's teacups.

This set of six teacups and plates were my mothers pride and joy along with here collection of pianos.
The fruit is hand painted and the guilding is 22ct gold.



I believe she bought these in the early sixties from Sheffield market.

They had pride of place in a beautiful georgian glass fronted display cabinet and only used for very special occasions.


I'm posting to welcome my friend Jilly to the world of blogging. She has a booth opposite mine in The Old Salerooms in Wellington. Pop over and see her and be ready to enjoy a cup of tea.

Now I'm of to my Etsy shop to fill the shelves a little having sadly neglecting it for a while.

Here's a sneak peak...

A pretty covered box to keep your treasures in....



and some lovely combs for summer hair.

I'll be linking with Marthas tea cup Tuesday.
Have a wonderful Tuesday.

That is a lovely tea set. My Mammaw collected miniature teacups and saucers. I wonder who took them when she passed away. Welcome to Jilly! Your projects are always so beautiful. Wishing you all the best. Hugs and blessings, Tammy

Hello Angela,
Your mother's treasures are lovely. The pianos are amazing, and the tea cup is gorgeous. I love the gold design around the edges and really love the fruit inside. I have a trio very similar...my backstamp is a gold crown with Bone China, Made in England underneath in gold letters.
I have yet to determine the manufacturer.
Thanks so much for sharing!
Hugs,
Terri
