Tea Cup Tuesday-Romantic Tea Cups


Hello All!
Welcome to Tea Cup Tuesday once again!

Valentine's Day is almost here, 
And I began to pull out some of my most
romantic tea cups today.

How about the tea cup above?
She is sweetly romantic with her bounty of flowers.
Pink seems to be a Valentine favorite,
(can you guess her maker?....)


A rose adds to this cute tea cups romantic charm.
She too is a sweetly romantic cup. 
Have an idea of this cups creator?


Romance isn't only expressed in pink....
How about a simple white tea cup, 
Pink roses...and eyelet trim?
Well, o.k. some pink!

This cups maker is unknown to me...
I know it's name, but not anything about it.


Put lace near any tea cup and it looks romantic! lol!
Hint: This is one of my all time favorite china companies.


Lovely gold filigree always looks romantic to me.
Not sweetly Romantic, but more classy. 
Do you recognize this cups maker? 

This style really lays on the layers.
She is lusciously romantic!
The deeper the colors,
and the more gold trim
seems to do the trick.
Guessing her maker may be a real challenge.


Old Country Roses must get many votes for most romantic china pattern.
It's traditional beauty really steals the show!
Many of you can guess this beauties manufacturer.


For some reason, 
I feel this is the most romantic tea cup I own.
Are you surprised?
I am! lol!
It isn't expensive, Pink or particularly well made,
and the paint is chippy....
Maybe it is the bohemian feel?
It looks like it was made in Europe,
a long while ago,
Maybe it has seen many travels?
Maybe it was owned by a woman in LOVE?
Anyways, it wins my vote for 
Most Romantic Cup this Valentine's Day.

February is a month for LOVE
I am sending out Hugs of LOVE to each of you today : )
Terri

I love your guessing game about who made the different cups and saucers! I think you should do this more often for it was so much fun. I knew the Shelley for it is so identifiable. Thanks for hosting this great party. Hope you have a lovely 14th!

They are all lovely Terri! I agree that Old Country Roses is the most romantic...beautiful pattern. Sending love back to you.

Wow Terri! You have the most beautiful collection of teacups I've ever seen. I knew the Shelley and they seem to be my favorite. The Bohemian style does have a very romantic feel to it and it is lovely.

I know so little about tea cups I couldn't have guessed any of them lol! They are each gorgeous and I have to say the first pink one is my absolute favorite! If winter ever ends and the snow ever stops I want to get out and hunt for some cups myself:)

Kathryn Ross said...

Hi Terri! Now, I was surprised with you most romantic pick. You had me guessing pink and roses all the way. It is an interesting cup, to be sure - and I love you ruminating about the stories behind them - and their original owners. There's a novel in that to be sure.
Joy!
Kathy

Hi Terri,
What lovely tea cups, I can only be sure of the Shelley tea cup. Thank you for hosting, I'm awed by your love of tea cups and find joy in viewing them as you account for each of them. Funny I call them she's also, and each jewellery piece I have made lately has a story to be told. Lovely

Createology said...

I have no idea of any named makers as I merely love each cup and saucer for its beauty and purpose of allowing us to enjoy sipping tea. Your collection is extensive and beautiful. Happy Hearts Valentine's Hugs Dear...

That last tea cup is romantic. Very Gilded Age. I can image the Countess Ellen Olenska sipping from this cup.

Johanna Gehrlein said...

Dear Terri,
that was a funny quiz about wonderful tea cups. I couldn't guess all, but the Meander and the Royal Albert. Your loveliest tea cup is really sweet. I think you are right, it looks like a very old one. Beautifully made and kept over long time. A real treasure. Thank you for sharing and hosting this wonderful tea time.
Happy Valentines Day.
Johanna
