* It's Tea Cup Tuesday *

* Because I wanted to participate in today's Tea Cup Tuesday, I'm repeating a blog post from June 2010 *

Okay, although I have 10 million things going on right now, I just have to participate in Terri's and Martha's Tea Cup Tuesday today! Below are photos of one of my newest antiquing finds!

Isn't this pretty? When it comes to tea cups and tea pots, I really love pink flowers.
Notice the top of the handle. It's a serpent's head, with its mouth clamping onto the cup. Isn't that unusual?

The "back" side of the cup has these tiny flowers......

While the "front" side has the larger flower.

That's it for today. Hope y'all enjoyed my little treasure (which cost less than $3.00...it has a tiny chip!)

  1. How elegant and pretty! Thanks for sharing your photos:)

  2. It is lovely. If you hadn't told me, I would never have noticed the chip. It really doesn't ruin the beauty of the set. Just put your thumb over it. hehe

  3. Hello :) What a gorgeous teacup you found, and for less than $3 !! Who cares if it has a small little chip! I love it :) And love the handle.

    Happy Teacup Tuesday!!

    Warmest, Brenda

  4. Becky, that is a beautiful cup and saucer. I love your quote of the day too. I kind of want to borrow it, if that is okay?

  5. Great find, Becky! Unique handle for sure and fancy too, but a serpent head on a teacup? That is wild!

  6. That snake handle is really interesting. I know you can easily find snakes near your rose bushes, I just never thought of combining them in porcelain!

  7. What a darling cup and a great post! Thank you for sharing it.

  8. Very pretty, and so unusual with the serpent handle. I have never seen that before with roses! Does it have a back stamp?
    Thank you so much for taking the time to show it to us today. Martha and I really appreciate all of you that participate and make Tea Cup Tuesday so fun!

  9. This is just beautiful!! I LOVE that handle on the cup!!!


  10. What a wonderful find! The serpent's mouth is really something and I love the shape of the cup, too.

  11. That's so pretty!
    I have a strange affinity to all things tea cups, mugs, glasses, bowls, plates... let's just say china in general ;)

  12. What a lovely teacup. I love the pink roses on it.
    Hope you had a grat day.

  13. Hi Karen! Thank you very much!

    Hi Ann! Good thinking about the chip! Thanks!

    Hi Brenda! Thank you so much for stopping by and taking the time to comment. I will get over to your blog as soon as I can!

    Hi Kathy! Thanks! And of course, you may "borrow" the quote! It isn't mine to lend or give, anyway! I love Robert Brault quotes. He's wonderful. I'll post more about him later!

    Hey Claudia! Thanks! And I think that may be a swan's head, instead of a serpent. I did some research, thanks to Terri. More on that later, too!

    Hi Janel! Uh, thanks..I think! :)

    Hi Granny Sue! Thank you so much for stopping and commenting!

    Hi Terri! Thank you so very much for asking about the back stamp and for alerting me to the fact that my inexpensive little treasure, might really be a little treasure!

    Hi Debbie/Dabble! Love your name! Thanks so much!

    Hi there, Snap! Wow! I love your name, too!! I also love the shape of the cup. Everything about it was just so unique, I might have even spent a whole ten bucks or so on it! :D

    Hi Estrella! Great to hear from you! Thanks! I really love all those kinds of things, too.

    Hi Penny! Thank you! I hope to get by the other Tea Cup Tuesday blogs soon...tomorrow hopefully!

  14. Hi Becky!!

    What an adorable teacup!! A little chip doesn't bother me a bit especially when the cup is as pretty as yours!
    And what fun to have Ms Terri find the maker for you!!!
    I wasnt able to participate this week but please stop by and visit some of my previous Teacup Tuesdays and enter my giveaway if you'd like!!
    Happy Teacup Tuesday on Wednesday :-)

    Hugs and Smiles,

  15. That handle is unusual. Very pretty cup!

  16. HI Becky! This set is just beautiful! I love that you share your finds with us.
