Tea Cup Tuesday, Autumn Style!

 

Fall is here, so this week I thought I'd share my favorite autumn tea cup. This is fine bone china made by the Rosina China Co. Ltd.


I love all the colors used in this design. On the front of this tea cup is a wooded scene featuring a red bridge over a gurgling brook.

 
Here's the backside of the tea cup. As you can see, it's just as lovely as the front. It features a little house nestled alongside the brook.


The cup and saucer are trimmed in gold. The handle also features gold trim on both sides of it.




The right side of the saucer carries the same scene as found on the backside of the tea cup. The left side of the saucer is a sweet farming scene with cattle grazing. The photos don't really capture how vibrant the colors are on the china.


Both the cup and saucer carry the backstamp.

 
 
 

Thanks so much for dropping in today!

Hello Michelle,
Wow! This is the perfect autumn cup...the colors are vibrant and look amazing. The scene looks like one from our own New England states with the covered bridge and the farm.
I love it!
Hugs,

That is such an unusual cup. I have never seen one like it in colors or design before. Reminds me of New England. I think you have a special find there!
