It's TEACUP TUESDAY ~ Yippeeeeee!

It is once again time to thank Martha and Terri for hosting
TEACUP TUESDAY!!
Be sure to check out all the members to see their terrific teacups!
I found this set of 7 teacups, saucers and dessert plates about 6 years ago and fell
in love with the handpainted pink roses and soft mint green shade on the delicate
translucent porcelain. There are no makers marks and I'm sure it is a dessert set
painted by a talented "Sunday painter". It was a popular hobby in days of old to purchase blank sets and hand paint them yourself . . .
on a restful Sunday after a week of hard chores!



Some of the pieces have the artists initials added as you can see the "WRC" in the close-ups. I love the sweetness of the dainty painting and especially the pale minty green! I collect Jadite and it goes so nicely with the Fire-King shade.




I hope you enjoy seeing this pretty set!

Lynn

  6. What a beautiful set of dishware. Imagine painting such lovelies in your spare time. I wish I could paint. And there are days when I wish I had more free time. Your teaset in the previous post is also very lovely. At times I am addicted to cross-stitch but haven't done it in quite some time. I must get motivated to start again. Crocheting and decoupaging has been taking up my free time of late. Hope you are having a fabulous day. Many blessings, Tammy

  11. Hi, Lynn,
    It is so nice to meet you. I have bought pillows from you on Ebay. You are so talented with your sewing and pillow making. I love handpainted china. It is one of many weaknesses that I have. This handpainted set that you are showing today is beautifully painted. Thank you for sharing with us, and thank you for coming by Bunny Cottage for a visit. Blessings to you! Vicki
