TeaCup Thursday

A lovely pattern very much all over the cup and saucer.
And the colors are calm and neutral.

Something to keep in mind when having to mix and match
various patters for a large (6 or more) tea gathering, which I seem
to have at times.

It is another Royal Patrician, out of Stafordshire, England,
which has since gone out of business.

Please companies, please don't stop making fine bone china
cups, saucers, teapots etc.

I sometimes feel a big desperate
and want to go online and buy up what I can.

Does anyone else feel that way?

How pretty! That's a pattern I haven't seen...kinda dreamy! I was heartbroken when RP closed in 2009. We stocked a lot in our antique/tea item shop and thought the quality very good. It's a scramble to find UK companies that are still making bone china...and are still affordable. The quality of what is coming out of China & Indonesia just don't make it, in my opinion.

Hi: I have never seen this pattern. It is very pretty, it looks like a dress fabric. It is so sad that companies are going out of business. I am new to your blog and plan to follow. Looking forward to getting to know you. Blessings, Martha

Love the soft colors of this Royal Patrician tea cup. It truly is ashame that the English companies have closed up shop.

Dear Marsha, very lovely teacup! It's always a delight to see different colors and shapes of teacups. :) I want to thank you for visiting my blog and sharing your memories. Please accept my apologies, since I was away on a mission trip to Arizona, I could no reply to comments.
Have a blessed day! ~*~Wendy~*~

I'm a fellow Teacup Thursday girl and I must say I totally understand your feelings in wanting to stockpile china while you can! I can't help myself :-)

I love your neutral colours!
