A Couple of Teacups from My Mom


Hi everyone!

Ooooh, I just get so excited when I get a call from my mom and it starts like this….”Diann, I just stopped at a yard sale and I bought you…….” It doesn’t even matter what comes next! LOL

Would you like to see the latest treasures she found for me? Of course you would!

teacups 001Only one saucer so, the guy just tossed in the other teacup. And apparently, he really did just toss it in! My mom was very nervous seeing how he was handling her new treasures!

teacups 002So pretty! I really like the turquoise blue color of this set.

teacups 003-tileteacups 005-horz  Love all the pretty gold details. There are no markings on either the cup or the saucer.

The other teacup and saucer don’t have markings either.

teacups 008I love the rich red color of this set. I have another teacup and saucer very similar to this set. They will go together quite nicely.

Thank you Mom for my pretty new teacups!!

  13. Woooo hoooooo for you Diann! What a great mom you have! Both sets are gorgeous! The coloring of the first one is so beautiful. It is hard to find that color. The second cup looks like a Paragon, but they would have put a backstamp on, so that is a puzzle. But a fine cup none the less!
    Enjoy your new treasures!
    Hugs,
    Terri

  16. Hello Diann,
    what a treasure is your Mom! You made me laughing with the sentence: "It doesn’t even matter what comes next!" LOL
    And right, you already knew, it will come some beautiful old preciosities. You Mom has chosen wonderful tea cups. I have never seen one like the turquoise one. Really outstanding and charming. And the red one is wonderful, too. Enjoy these prety cups with many nice tea times and thank you for sharing them with us.
    Best greetings, Johanna
