Royal Minster Tea Cup and Saucer Set

Hello Everyone and Welcome! 

Don't you just love summer? I do! Even though this year's been a scorcher. I think this is the hottest summer we've had in a long time. The temperature has been 100+ for the last three weeks or so.

Today's tea cup and saucer set is by Royal Minster of England. It features beautiful yellow flowers, a few small white flowers and some lovely, green leaves. I even suffered the heat to take the pictures outside.

This little gal decided to join in on the action. She's been so bored this summer, she needed to get out and have some fun!

They're resting in my neighbor's tree, which sits in between our backyards. When their doggies started barking at me, J came to the back door to see what was going on. I called out, I'm borrowing your tree for a few minutes. Lol... I love when my neighbors catch me doing crazy things!

I love this raised design around the bottom of the cup. A variation of it can also be found on the saucer.

Below is a close-up of the flowers on the backside of the tea cup.

Here's the bottom of the tea cup with the Royal Minster mark.

For other great tea cup and saucer sets, please visit Terri at Artful Affirmations and Martha at Martha's Favorites.

I'm also linking up to Antiques and Teacups for Tuesday Cuppa Tea.
Thanks so much for stopping by and visiting!

I love your beautiful tea set! The big daisies are so beautiful. They are my favorite flower. I didn't really notice the foot until I came upon your other picture. SO, SO LOVELY! The Royal Minister is a treasure. The little gal looks beautiful in the tea cup. Your photos are wonderful.
Thanks for the lovely tea time.

What a lovely teacup! I don't know why there aren't more yellow florals around...they are so sunny. Perfect for summer. Thanks for sharing and linking to Tuesday Cuppa Tea!

This is a sweet cup! I always love a yellow rose cup, and yours has such style. The shape is unique and the detail of raised design really adds to the cups beauty.
Your must live near me...it has been over 100 for a while. Today though, we have rain and a lower temp. Yay!
(btw, the comment before was from me...using someone else's computer! So I redid it so you would know it was me. Lol!)
