Pretty Chintz for TEACUP TUESDAY

Welcome to TEACUP TUESDAY and please give a big round of applause for MARTHA and TERRI for hosting it! Be sure to take a peek at all the other terrific teacups shared!
My selection this week is a charming vintage Chintz pattern made in England by James Kent LTD and called ROSALYNDS.
I found this set of 4 orphan teacups in a local thrift shop about 10 years ago and hope to run into the saucers one day :-) The transfer pattern is the sweetest with pink and yellow cabbage roses and blue forget me nots with the perfect touch of age crazing.



The only other Chintz in my collection of china are 2 lonely saucers . . . perhaps I'll find their cups when I find the Rosalynds saucers :-))
The pattern on the left is called JUNE and I think the one on the right is ROSINA



Thank you for your visit and I'm off now to see the pretties you've selected to share this week!!

  10. Hi Lynn: I just love the Chintz. I have a few pieces. They are so hard to get because of costs. Most of them are a lot more than I can pay. Those are beautiful, I pray you find their matches soon. Have a great Tea Cup Tuesday. Blessings, Martha

  14. Thanks so much for your visit to my blog. Your choice of tea cups this week is wonderful. I hope you one day find your matching pieces. I would love to have fabric like this for a beautiful table cloth and matching dining room curtains - and of-course the tea cups. Have a great rest of the week.

    These Tea Cups are lovely. Even though you don't have all the matching pieces, they certainly are wonderful treasures.
