WOW look at these sweet beautiful antique pink luster Tea cups and saucers another sweet blogger sent me !!!!!
I was thrilled to pieces when I seen this big box at my front door, couldn't hardly get it opened fast enough to see what was inside.
I had been looking through a couple of my Tasha Tudor books back in the fall after I had gone to a new friends house for lunch for my birthday and Karen had a gorgeous set of these dishes just like Tasha Tudor did. Now lots of them are staffordshire maybe all because they are English dishes.
Karen even has the teapot and cream and sugar which I have never seen the sugar bowl.
Gorgeous and I'm still so excited I own these since you just don't see them everywhere like other tea cups and saucers ,these below are my favorites ,I had never seen the circle pattern . There is two of each pattern he sent me.
I couldn't wait to show these off so piled them on my silver tray and stared taking pictures
This is the first pattern I had ever seen in pink luster, the house pattern. Love it . Also the saucers are not flat they are like a small fruit bowl,deep. Did you know the story that people in the 1800's really drank out of the bowls also?
Love this pattern also, beautiful 1800 patterns
This is in the bottom of couple of the tea cups the tea leaf ? maybe charming what ever it is .
OK us have a couple cups of tea today ,I'm sort of afraid to add hot water into these they are very delicate and beautiful of course and I want to thank Marshel with all my heart for sending me this wonderful gift, You know a person has a good heart when they will send another blogger such a gift.
I can join in Pink Saturday today for sure with my pink staffordshire Pink Lusterware cups.
Now is it named Pink Luster or Pink Lusterware china?
