Crown Trent Teacup

Today was a great day for new china finds.  Since I had an appointment in a part of town that I don’t often visit, I decided to stop at the area Goodwill store on my way home.  I’m so glad I did!  There were two bone china teacups just waiting there for me.

I’ll show you the Crown Trent cup today and save the Royal Albert for next week.

The teapot in the background was another find from the English company Pristine China and was a bargain at $4.94.  It will become my everyday teapot for the next little while.

This cup and saucer has such a dainty pink roses pattern.

It is fine bone china made in Staffordshire England.

Are you curious to know what I paid for this beauty?  It was what I thought was a very fair price of $5.95 (less actually with my senior discount).  I’ll take some time later to research this teacup and see if I can find the pattern name, etc.

Be sure to visit Terri and Martha for more Teacup Tuesday.

Par Tea Lady, hello,

Your tea cup is lovely...oh, I do like the pretty pink roses, and I am amazed at the price you paid for it. I can learn a lot from you fine ladies.

I'm glad I came across your blog...I did not know that Wedgwood made tea, too.

Thank you for sharing on Teacup Tuesday. Have a wonderful day,

Marianne

What treasures you did find. The teacup is very pretty and such a good price, but I love the simple green teapot too. That would be just the kind of teapot I use in the mornings for tea.
