Antique/Vintage Glass – Teacups (some with saucers)

There is just something charming about a teacup . . . I can’t quite pinpoint what it is (especially since I don’t even like tea), but I am always attracted to a pretty teacup and often find myself adding one to my collection.

This new addition is not marked, so I have no idea who the maker is, but I think it is lovely.

In the examples below, each one has been embellished with gilt, and of course . . . adding “bling” just makes everything better.

I think the teacup shown below is a real charmer.  It has several markings on the bottom,  and is from England.  The colors and detailing on this cup are really beautiful.

The lovely loner shown below is by Havilland (Limoges, France).

One of my very favorite teacups in my collection is the one shown below.  It is Chinese, and I believe it to be quite old.  What I find most fascinating  about it is the fact that it has very pronounced raised (almost 3-D) artwork all over the cup and its matching saucer.  I am astonished that it has existed for many years and has no damage whatsoever.  It is truly beautiful.

The two New Orleans commemorative teacups shown below were  gifts from my mother, who always knows exactly what I love.  These are dimunitive, and could almost be called demitasse cups.  I think they are beautiful!

Come back soon . . . I have more delightful specimens, and I will be adding them as time allows!
