Royal Dover Tea Cup and Saucer


This week I'm showing off this lovely tea cup and saucer by the Royal Dover China company.

 
The background is slightly off white with white flowers and a plethora of colored leaves (aqua, gray, brown, gold and blue).


The tea cup is ribbed about three-fourths down toward the bottom. It was very sunshiney when I took these photos! The saucer is ribbed all around its edges.


The backside of the cup.


The cup and saucer are both trimmed in gold trim.


For some reason, the handle only has gold trim on one side.


The cup and saucer are both marked on the bottom: Royal Dover China, Bone China, Made In England.


Thank you so much for taking the time to visit!

What a beautiful and unique teacup - I love it has leaves,and the colours are awesome....I have seen more aqua blue for fall in decorating this year than ever before - this teacup fits right in, doesn't it?

Happy Tea Tuesday!

Love your blog! Especially the background pattern. Will check out more of your posting later.
Thanks for commenting on my blog post.

I love your china cup and am particularly drawn to those soothing green/teal/aqua (whatever you all it) colours.

Your vintage teacup has a unique shape to it and a simple but pleasing pattern.

What an elegant cup and saucer- I especially like the combo of blues and taupe with golden hues! The ridges in the saucer add nice texture. This cup would add beauty to any teatime. Thanks for visiting my blog. Happy Thursday :)

Amazing! I have this exact set that was given to me by a dear friend.. I just love it. Tea tastes just so much better from it.
Lovely blog, I'm a new follower.

Hi, I recently purchased cups and saucers and trying to research history and value. I stumbled onto your blog with the picture of your vintage cup/saucer!! Mine is so close, but some differences. My pattern consists of additional leaves. Would you have any suggestions in finding out information about the pattern?
