Tea Cup Thursday

We're joining Miss Spenser and others for Teacup
Thursday today, featuring the birthday cup for the month of August. This Royal Albert bone china tea
cup from England, in both full size and petite cups, feature the Flower of the Month Series.  For August, it's the Poppy. The cups are both dated and copyright 1970.

The sweet little tea pot featuring precious blue blossoms, forget me knots perhaps, is marked on the bottom Lane End Pottery, Fine Bone China, England.

The August teacup is very pretty. The teapot is too. I have a few small pieces marked Lane End, but other than that, I don't know anything about the company.

The little petit sizes are so sweet. I love that Royal Albert Flower of the Month series.

I've been thinking of collecting these teacups and didn't realize they date to 1970! They certainly age well, don't they!
