Royal Chelsea Tea Cup and Saucer

This week, I'm showing off one of my favorite tea cup and saucer sets.
 
 
 I love people scenes! The cup and saucer feature a trio of folk, in a black and white design.
 
 
 Two ladies are being assisted by a gentleman in trying on buckets as hats. Nearby, a cow and dog show no interest in what these silly humans are doing.


The gold trim is in excellent condition. There are two bands of gold around the foot of the cup. Each side of the handle is trimmed out in gold as well.


Both the cup and saucer are marked Royal Chelsea/Made in England/Fine Bone China on the bottom.



 
Thanks for your visit today!

Oh those really are unique and nifty teacups! I don't think I have ever seen any like that before!

I tend to always gravitate towards the floral ones - so it is nice to see others for sure.

Thanks for sharing!

Que Bella is right! I have never seen a tea cup with a scene at the bottom of the cup like this. It is very beautiful. Thanks for sharing. Blessings, Martha

Fabulous teacup and saucer set! I have some tea sets and teapots in the Royal Chelsea company. Their quality is great and I love the different designs they manufactured. This pattern is a new one to me but looks similar to the antique ones in museums. Thanks for sharing your beauty!

Hi Michelle,
What a sweet teacup! I love the Victorian cups with people on them. Yours is unusual with the scene in the bottom of the cup; lovely! I have one Royal Chelsea but it has the florals in the cup. It would be nice to find one with a Victorian scene too. Thanks so much for sharing with us at Tea Time.

Blessings,
Sandi
