Queen Anne Gold Lace teacup

P7223021

This week I’m showing another teacup from my sister-in-laws china cabinet.  It is a bone china Queen Anne cup and saucer in the Gold Lace pattern.

This set looks very dramatic with its heavily gilded “leaf” chintz pattern and bold stripes.

The cup has a lovely scalloped shape and the saucer is also slightly scalloped.

All that gold really stands out on the white china.

Queen Anne china was made by Shore & Coggins, England.  This back stamp was used from 1959 to 1966.

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

I’m trying to catch up since returning from Orlando yesterday evening.  It was a wonderful and very busy trip.  I snapped close to 450 pictures of the theme parks, resort, my family, and so on.  I did manage to have afternoon tea at the Grand Floridian in the Garden View Lounge and I’ll share that with you later.

"Queen Anne Gold Lace" is a great name for this pattern, and I love all the gilding. "Dramatic" is the right word for it -- just lovely! So glad to see you're back, and I look forward to hearing more about your trip!

I am so glad you had a good trip! And that your SIL let you photograph her tea cups! This one is stunning, really. I do love a gold pattern on a yellow cup! Queen Anne has so many really lovely patterns, and this is one of their best.
