TEA TIME TUESDAY!
TEA TIME TUESDAY!
Today I am sharing with you some more of the pretty china pieces a very dear friend send me to care for! Am I not the luckiest ducky in the pond or what!!
The most charming Paragon Teapot has a delightful wreath of cottage garden flowers ~ roses, iris, tulips, anemonies, asters ~ circling around the upper half and lid. I simply adore it with it's dainty scallops, swirly handle and painted golden touches.
This huge box had me reaching into a Lifetime supply :-) of packing popcorn and gasping out loud as I carefully opened each piece and matched the cups up with the saucers. Eleven exquisite Paragon cup and saucer sets in a rainbow of pastel sherbet shades with rich black! Oh my!
I'll showcase more of them in another tuesday post.
I chose this pretty blue one today with it's Spring tulips and jonquils. How artfully the flowers are arranged in the cup and a sweet little arrangement on the saucer! The flowers base is a transfer design with painted details and all the black is carefully handpainted around everything! The artists must definitely drink decaffinated tea to have such a steady hand ;-)
Isn't it interesting how the design does not lose perspective when looking into the cup - it looks like a plate! The bottom mark is PARAGON ~ By appointment H.M. QUEEN & H.M. QUEEN MARY ~ Fine Bone China ENGLAND Reg
Ahhhh look at this sweet teapot! It is marked TUSCAN Fine Bone China Made In England and has a Crown and Wings motif. It is totally handpainted from the pretty pink posies and minty green leaves right down to all those little gold dots! Wowzers is it gorgeous and I absolutely LOVE it!
I made the trio of tea theme handmades below and along with some more they will be in my Ebay store later today! There's a cute "Pincushion Confection" made from a vintage teacup, rose teacup accent pillow and another featuring a graceful Victorian Harrison Fisher lady enjoying a cuppa!
I am linking up with these fun tea parties today so be sure to stop by each and see these ladies sweet teatime offerings!
