I have early memories of beautiful tea cups in jewelry shop windows across the river in Canada. My Mom had a small collection of tea cups that were displayed in a black metal wall shelf in the kitchen. My Grandma had tea cups in her china cabinet. Beautiful tea cups were given as bridal shower and wedding gifts. It was fashionable to display tea cups. I still display mine.
When I am not blogging, I am selling furniture four days a week! China cabinets, china hutches, and curio cabinets have declined in sales over the years. Formal dining rooms are giving way to combination great room/kitchens. Minimalism is in vogue.
Tea cups sell at thrift stores for $2-$4 each. Good for me, but sad that not many still appreciate a beautiful tea cup.
I have decided to feature one of my tea cups every week on my blog. If you are a tea cup collector, you will like it, if not, maybe I can convert you!
My first tea cup to be featured is a Royal Prince Bone China fluted cup with roses.
This tea cup is sitting on my vintage sewing machine with a girl figural planter and vintage eyeglasses.
