It’s time to display our teacups for Teacup Tuesday. Thank you to our hostess, Kim, at http://shabbypinkandpretty.blogspot.com. Be sure to visit Kim’s blog to see what other beauties she and other friends have posted for you!
I recently went to a favorite antique store, and found this four tiered teacup stand, already distressed in shabby chic white! AND, there are roses on the top! There were two of them, so I bought the second one for a dear friend’s birthday. I had been looking for a three tiered stand, but hadn’t found any that I was in love with, so when I saw this one, it took me about one second to take it up to the register to pay! I was so happy to have found them, but to only pay $20 each was even better. Don’t we just love a bargain!
The teacups on the stand are, from top to bottom:
Royal Albert Peach Damask,
Bethany, with no pattern name. It’s the same pattern as the Allyn Nelson,
just different manufacturer, and it doesn’t have the flowers on the inside of the cup
Royal Albert Soft Pink Lace,
Royal Albert Rose Cameo Pink.
This teacup, sitting on a pink cake plate, has a yellow background, with a chintz pattern of pink and white roses, as does it’s matching teapot, made by Allyn Nelson. There is no pattern name on the bottom. I just hate it when there’s no name. Makes it almost impossible to find one on ebay when you don’t have a name!
I have the yellow one in the Bethany teacup without the flower inside, just like the pink one on the tiered stand. I found these two at T.J. Maxx for $9.99. I think this Allyn Nelson was about $30 at Country Clutter. I would like to get another yellow one with the flowers on the inside, so I have a pair to go with the teapot. I also have this set in blue – I might post that one next week!
I got the cake plate quite a while ago, maybe 5 yrs. or more, and don’t remember where, but they now have them at T.J. Maxx in this smaller size, and also in the larger size…in case you’re interested in a pink cake plate. I use it often for my grandgirls’ tea parties. It’s fun for me to get my things out to take pictures. I don’t use these very often, but since they’re out, I will use them for my morning tea out on the deck tomorrow!
I’m glad you stopped in for a visit. I hope you enjoyed seeing some of my collection, and hope you will come back again!
Don’t forget, if you haven’t already stopped in for a visit with Kim, she’s waiting for you!
May your week be filled with wonder and delight. God bless one and all!
