Final tea time in November 2012

November is coming to a close.  Because we were in the Syracuse area for Thanksgiving we were able to go to the Syracuse Regional Market.  It is one of my favorite flea markets. It was a snowy day but it didn't stop the dealers and it didn't slow down the customers.
        I was a little surprised to find some veggies still available and still looking good.  Even some mushrooms this time.

And of course I had to visit the local coffee bar for a great cuppa.

  And this week I was very happy and lucky to be able to find not ONE but TWO nice cup and saucer sets.  I am going to show one this week and save the other for next week.

This particular cup and saucer didn't have a design name or number.  But it was from Regency Bone China Company.  The thing that impressed me the most was how it resembled Old Country Roses.  It would look fine at a tea party using  that china I imagine.

 And the pretty gold edges really dresses it up I think.

Before I discovered the Royal Chelsea of a few weeks ago I hadn't really thought about all the cup and saucers that were rimmed with beautiful gold.  But lately I seem to be finding them everywhere.
And this is a beautiful example!
Here is the mark, fairly plain with not much information included.

I hope you enjoyed the quick trip to the flea market and this weeks cup and saucer choice.

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

Hi Beth,
Your teacup today is just gorgeous! I love the brushed on gold trim! Such a pretty teacup and it does resemble the OCR pattern. Thanks for sharing and coming to tea. Enjoy your week.

I LOVE your teacup! Lovely! And it was so nice to see your market. I love the organic one near us. We are out of flea markets here...a very seasonal, non winter thing. Glad you enjoyed your and came home with such a treasure! Thanks for linking to Tuesday Cuppa Tea!

Lovely new cup! It does remind me of OCR too! I do love a gold trim on a cup.
I looked up the backstamp in my book and only found one example which was not quite like yours. If I find one I will let you know.
I am glad you had a nice Thanksgiving.
