Teacup Thursday

We're joining Miss Spenser today for Teacup Thursday and are sharing a beautiful set of vintage violet teacups inherited from our dear Aunt Hilda. Note the brilliant colors of these lustre teacups and saucers and the heavy gold accents around the rim, base, and handles. They are marked on the bottom of the saucers, Royal Sealy China Japan. There is a great deal of sentiment and beauty within these teacups, currently on display in the tea room. If teacups could talk, they would share an interesting story to be sure. I know that my Aunt traveled frequently so it's quite possible that these were a souvenir or simply a discovery in a local market.
