Tea Cup Tuesday.

Last Tuesday I showed one of my favorite teacups as my first entry with  Tea Cup Tuesday.  This Tuesday I decided to show three teacups.

When I was in college I joined a sorority and our flower was the violet.  So for some of the early tea cups that I purchased they just had to have violets on them.  The one on the left is a Royal Albert tea cup.  I think it is the most beautiful.  In the center there is a teacup that I bought back in the late 60s when we went to New Orleans.  There is a label on the bottom that says it is from a shop called Dupree's. Don't know if it still exists. This teacup is a Gladstone Bone china teacup. The one on the right is a Royal Grafton.  There are all bone china, all made in England and all much loved.
     I wonder what I will find to show you next week.

Your three teacups are beautiful and I like the violet sorority theme. The Royal Albert cup is stunning.

Three violet teacups, very pretty violet teacups. You can easily set a very pretty tea table with all 3 looking as if they belong together.
