Second Teacup Tuesday in December

Welcome to my Tea Cup Tuesday entry for the second Tuesday in December.

Just a quick visit today to show you the other cup and saucer I got when I was at the Regional Market in Syracuse.  (over the Thanksgiving weekend.)
It is also loaded with gold on the edges.
 I like the way the gold goes around the floral edging so that it makes it stand out but doesn't seem to over power it.
And I always like it when they put the flower inside the cup as well!

 Here is the mark.  As you can see it doesn't give the pattern a name.  It is from Tuscan Bone China.
But I like the idea of calling it something like "FloraGold."


Things will be busy here for awhile but I hope to be able to continue to show tea cups each week. 

Thanks for stopping by.
 
Be sure to visit the other tea parties after you end your visit here.

What a pretty teacup! I always love Tuscan. They had some great designs! The flower in the cup means it was made prior to the 1960s, I think, when a US law came into force not allowing flowers in the cup for direct import from potteries, as someone was afraid they might be toxic. Oh really. You could by them from a retail shop that sourced them from the pottery but they had to go through a middleman. I used to import from an English pottery, and they had (the US govt.) the silliest rules!!!

That is a beautiful teacup, Beth! I like to find flowers inside the cup too. It's something pretty to look at when one is sipping tea. Thank you for coming to my Christmas Tea and sharing your beauty with us.

Christmas blessings,

Clearly you were a winner with the lovely finds at the market. The gold is showy which I love on a teacup and saucer. The flowers in the cup are so special. Thanks, Pam

Am linking up with the link up :)

I like the gold border and like how it is solid across the top and how it entwines with the floral pattern. Very elegant - a great thrifting find!

Merry Christmas :)

This is a very pretty vintage tea cup! I love the pretty florals, and the gold trim really sets them off beautifully! I love flowers inside and outside of a cup. Tuscan is a fine company...I have a few of their cups too.
Thanks for sharing with us all.
Hugs,
Terri
