Teacup Tuesday




I apologize for the poor quality of the photos . . . the lighting inside my house is awful. Our home was a model, and the paint inside is rather dark, and as this is an "energy" home, all the lightbulbs (sockets, too, darn!) are those energy saving ones. I am all for saving energy and I am respectful of our planet, but, darn, I hate those things! They just aren't bright enough for anything! Anyway, I digress . . . I bought this little demitasse cup in an antique shop several years ago. It didn't come with a saucer, but I thought it was so pretty. It's Royal Doulton bone china, made in England, and that's basically all I know. I want to thank all the sweet ladies who commented on my teacup last week; hopefully I will get around to all of you to thank you personally--the past couple of months have just been crazy-busy around my house!

This is a lovely tea cup! It looks like an older cup too. It is interesting that it says "Made in England" and repeated as in "Royal Doulton England". I do not own many RD pieces...so I don't know about that backstamp. I will have to go check it out.
Hugs,
Terri
