Pretty Limoges Teacup

Hi Everyone and Happy Tea Day!

Today I want to show you a couple of pretty treasures Troy recently won for me on Ebay. So, I set a little tea for you. And once this post is done, I am making tea for myself and going to enjoy it while reading my book out on the patio!

I polished up one of my misfit silver spoons for you. Well, of course I had to leave a little pretty patina here and there to show off the lovely design.

My first "new" treasure is this ever so delicate little sugar pot. Such pretty dainty roses on it. I fell in love with it when Troy showed me the auction on Ebay and asked me if I would like this piece. Well, um....hello, YES!

Here is the marking on the bottom.

It is such a pretty little treasure!

The same Ebay seller had several teacup and saucer sets for sale. Troy said that he wasn't even going to show me the teacups. He was just going to pick one out so that something in the package would be a surprise. And this is the beautiful Limoges teacup and saucer he picked out.

I just love the two handles!

And here are a few just random pictures.

The square wicker charger was a clearance find at Walmart last fall - $1.50
A vintage hankie was from a flea market last year ~ .50 cents
The white teapot was a Christmas present from Troy
The white cotton lace embroidered napkin is one of 4 bought at a flea market for 4/$2.00

Thank you for stopping by. I hope you enjoyed your visit today!

  1. Troy has a real good taste! Lucky you! The tea cup and saucer and the covered server are so pretty and dainty. They even match. I love Bavarian china. YTour tea setting is just lovely...Christine

  2. I agree! Troy did a FABULOUS job picking out that beautiful teacup to surprise you with! And the covered sugar bowl is precious! Even though they are from different makes, they certainly go very well together! The florals and the colors are almost a perfect match :0

  11. You are a lucky woman, having your man shop for you on Ebay!!!
    And he has good taste!
    The sugar container is just gorgeous and the tea cup and saucer is absolutely beautiful. He did really well.
    Thank you for joining in Tea Cup Tuesday.

    p.s. You should receive your package by the end of the week.

  13. Your gifts are very pretty. I think as I get older I wouldn't mind a cup that has 2 handles. :-)

  14. Troy has wonderful taste in china...that sugar bowl is beautiful. Being a non-tea drinker I am not real familiar with tea cups, but I don't think I have seen a double handled one before, really unique.

  15. Diann, you have one thoughtful hubby! Your tea things are just sweet and what a lovely thing for your hubby to do! I love the two handled teacup! Wonderful tea with the lacey hankie! Thanks for sharing and for joining me for Tea Time. Hope you're having a beautiful week.


  16. Your tea set is beautiful. I really like the two handled tea cup. Pink roses are just the best.

  17. How beautiful! Yes, they are indeed treasures!


  18. Hi: I just love Limoges, yours is beautiful! The set just looks lovely. Thank you for sharing it with us. Blessings, Martha

  19. I love a good tea party! These pieces are gorgeous. Great finds. I just tried to sneak over to our local thrift store where I had seen a beautiful fault for not acting asap...but kids came first. Next time!

  20. Diann, That's a lovely tea setting. Love the sugar pot and the Limoges teacup! Absolutely stunning!
    Hugs and blessings, Beth

  21. Hello Diann- These are lovely, but so is your Husband for treating you to something so sweet. My Husbear just rolls his eyes when I bring home a new teacup. Take care.

  22. You can't go wrong with Limoges. Love the roses! Connie

  23. Hi Diann! Your sugar pot and tea cup are beautiful!.. Hmmm.. they make me wonder if I should be checking out Ebay a little more. I've always been a little leery about shopping online, and it was a huge step as it is (ha! ha!), that I have just recently become an Etsy customer for the first time! I have simply GOT to keep up with the times I guess! ~tina

  24. What beautiful rose Limoges china!! It is fun to search for treasures on e-bay!

  25. Diann,
    I love your treasures! The tea cup and sugar pot are beautiful.
