Teacup Tuesday – Royal Grafton

This is another of my favorite teacups by Royal Grafton.  It is fine bone china and was made in England.

P7051678

It is a little hard to see in my photos, but the background color is a lovely pale pink.

P7051675I love the botanical pattern with the finely detailed fruits and berries.

P7051676There is the number l423 in gold on the back, but I’m not sure what this pattern is called.  I saw it at Ruby Lane antique store online and they just called it mixed fruit.  Also their teacup seemed to have more gold and a little darker pink color.

P7051677

I’m hoping that a book I ordered at Amazon “Collectible Cups and Saucers” will be helpful.  Does anyone have a recommendation on books for the cup and saucer collector?

Be sure to visit Terri and Martha to see lots more beautiful teacups.

The shape of this set is one of my favorites. I just like the rounded shape of the cup and the pleasant feel of the handle. I have a couple of books in that same series and they are really good!
