This week's tea party has turned into a sort of a tribute to our tea party hostesses.As usual, when I see a mustache cup I think of Martha, at Martha's Favorites. The roses always put me in mind of Sandy at Rose Chitz Cottage. The book of poetry from the Scottish Poet Scott reminds me that our hostess Ruth at Antiques and Tea Cups likes to show us books and such from the British Isles and although you can't see it in this picture the tablecloth behind is hand embroidered which always reminds me of Bernideen at Bernideens Tea Time Blog. All are listed at the bottom of this post.
The cup and saucer are hand painted Japanese. The company is called Chase. There are many examples on line but I never found this one. It definitely reminds me of Royal Albert,s Old English Rose.
The above mark is on the bottom of the tea cup...........
The mustache cup was made in Germany as mark says. I had a hard time photographing the entire cup but it says "present." And included a raised rose or a pink flower anyway.
This lovely old book of Sir Walter Scott" poems really appeals to me. What a pleasant time it would be to enjoy some lovely tea and read some of his poetry. I like the way they used to decorate covers of books!
I hope you have enjoyed this week's post.
Here are the tea parties I will be joining this week. Hope you will visit them too.
