Tea Cup Tuesday, second in August.

Suddenly August is moving right along.

This week I have a pretty little tea cup to share that I found recently in a group shop.  They wanted too much for it so I didn't buy it but I took a few pictures to share with you.

A couple of weeks ago I showed you a thistle tea cup.  Here is a very different looking thistle tea cup. 
This picture shows how I found it in the shop, stacked on top of another one.  Naturally I took it off and put it on a nearby table to take pictures of it.
 Here it is.  Look closely and you will see that it has a very pale blue background.


It is from Foley China. and is called Glengary Thistle.  This mark was used between 1948 and 1963. Foley was produced by E. Brain and Co. Ltd Foley China Works 1903 to 1963.
                                             

                                                 I hope you have enjoyed this weeks selection.


After you visit my post today be sure to check out  these other tea posts.

Hi Beth,
What a cute teacup! I saw that teacup somewhere just recently. Love the pale blue with the pink. Thank you for joining me for tea and have a lovely day.

Blessings,

It is indeed a pretty cup...maybe someday you will be able to find another.

Pretty teacup, maybe the price will go down to 'more affordable'.

I love the teacup. I, too, saw it recently...someone had that pattern as a giveaway. I so hoped to win it...but no. But I'm sure it went to a loving home, just as yours found a home with you!

Hello Beth,
I love this new cup of yours. I have seen this one maybe twice in my antique travels, and loved the pale blue background, but they were always priced high. Some day, I will bring one home : )
Hugs,
Terri

That is such a pretty Glengarry Thistle teacup and saucer!! My Mom has a thistle teacup that I love. It would be fun to search and see how many different types of thistle cups there were.
