Noritake Ireland for Teapot Tuesday

After attending the wonderful “Tea For Toys” event in Newnan, GA, I stopped at a couple of thrift stores on the way home.  I found a pretty cup and saucer by Noritake Ireland in the Thornton pattern.


This is a discontinued pattern that was produced between 1980-87. 


The pretty flowers are very pale pink and white with a lattice work background, but I was first attracted by the wonderful shape of this cup.



I found several other items including a couple of Christmas With Victoria books ($2.49), a lovely glass footed bowl ($1.50) and a pretty Lenox Christmas Tree dish (.99).


The Noritake teacup was also a bargain at $1.99.  It’s fun to shop at thrift stores and Goodwill, isn’t it?

You can visit the lovely blogs of Terri and Martha the hostesses of Teacup Tuesday to see their posts and links.  Also visit Wanda Lee and Pam for Teapot and Tea Things Tuesday.

Great finds. I do so like exploring antique shops and thrift stores. The teacup does have a very pretty shape and love the soft feel of the pattern.
