Tea Cup Tuesday. Second Tuesday in December

Time for Tea Cup Tuesday............
After you visit my site be sure to visit the others at 

The weekend of Thanksgiving we were in Syracuse, NY and on that Sunday we managed to get to the Regional Market flea market.  Probably our last flea market of the year. I found a few teacups but nothing too exciting to buy.
    The only tea cups  that were even worth photographing were these which were new and not nearly as nice as the ones I like to collect. I don't know but think they were probably made in China.  The cost was certainly right.  $6.00 a set.  They were pretty to look at though.

A few weeks ago we managed to get to our favorite flea market, Leesport, where I bought two cup and saucer sets.  The one I showed last week was one of those.  And here is the second.  It is definitely Christmas with pretty holly and berries. I am pretty sure it was made in Japan and it is porcelain, not bone china, but for the price I paid, it was well worth it.

I didn't take a picture of the bottom of the cup or saucer because they said nothing.  Probably there was a sticker that said Made in Japan at one time.

I have one more seasonal cup I will share next week.  Be sure to check here.
