My friend Debbie surprised me on Sunday with this beautiful Royal Standard bone china teacup. She found it at a thrift store in Massachusetts and thought I would like to have it.
The pastoral scene and colors on this cup are so soft and pretty.
I like the pedestal base on the cup and the lovely broken loop shape of the handle.
Royal Standard was a well known trademark of Chapmans Longton Ltd. It was in use from about 1949.
This is an embroidered tea towel that I found recently. It is pretty and colorful, but I did find one flaw with it.
This reads “teatine” to me – maybe I’m a little too fussy.
