Thread: Tea cups

    Default Tea cups


    I was just posting some photos on my blog about a tea we had last
    weeked. Some of the tea cups used at the tea are from a family
    collection, some I remember from childhood.
    I remember mom had a special wall rack that the cups hung from and the
    saucers were placed on edge on a grooved shelf above the matching cup.
    The rack was three shelves high and probably 4 or 5 cups wide.

    Do you think anyone collects tea cups anymore?

    Had to get photos of the tea cup table.

    =======================================

    Ooooooooooh so pretty!'' My mother had a collection of teacups too.

    My dad remarried after she died and I have no idea what happened to
    them - or her mother's well seasoned cast iron pans 70+ years old in
    1976. :-(

    PS Did your mom have any cups that were pastel with white polka dots?

    Heavens yes! When I had my antiques shop, I was amazed at the number
    I sold...Great fun to trot out and use the way you did. My
    Grandmother used to collect them & as a little girl I'd get to pick
    one out to use for tea parties with her - made for some great
    memories. Sadly, I have no idea where her collection went, but I
    always think of her when someone pours me tea in a pretty cup.

    My niece has the collection. She really appreciates and loves them,
    I'm happy she has them.

    I don't remember any like that. They sound like they'd be beautiful.

    Yes, I have a friend in Cleveland who has an extensive collection of
    antique European teacups and saucers, mostly acquired through family.

    Yours are really lovely!!!

    What a lovely idea to have a tea. And how fortunate to have so many
    beautiful cups and saucers to use, and all those wonderful memories to
    enjoy.

    My great-grandmother collected them. My mom inherited them and has them
    displayed on a hutch in the dining room.

    Thank you boron. The tea was very nice. My niece did a great job. The
    caterer flaked out on her and she had to make tea sandwiches for fifty
    plus with only a few days notice.

    Yes, the memories were great.

    It seems I enjoy the tea more in a nice cup with a saucer.
    We are fortunate to have the collection. Not anything expensive, just

    WOW! Those are beautiful. I've always loved them
    but we rarely drink tea. I do know people my age with
    very nice collections, begun one or two a year since
    they were children.

    > Do you think anyone collects tea cups anymore?


    Yes, me. I always drink my morning tea from a bone china cup with
    saucer; the open shape of cups definitely improves the taste :-). I
    used to buy old fine-bone china from jumble sales , not just tea (and
    coffee) cups and saucers but teapots, milk jugs and sugar bowls and
    hand- embroidered linen tray cloths, tea-table cloths and napkins. My
    junk is very "collectible" now, but I only paid pennies for it back in
    the 60s and 70's when nobody wanted old-fashioned last remnants of a
    set .Unmatched, it still makes a pretty breakfast table or afternoon tea
    for guests, and I like using it myself and wondering who else did, a
    century ago.

    Janet.

    Lovely, just lovely! My grandmother collected tea cups. My mom inherited
    them and she gave me about 12 of them. She has the rest. She never added
    to the collection, nor have I. They are nice to have, though.

    Jim recently came home with his portion of his aunt's teacup collection.
    I had no idea it was such a popular hobby. They're beautiful, and I'm
    glad we have them.


    My taste has always run towards the hand crafted stoneware pottery. I
    love outdoor art shows and usually end up buying a mug, a plate, or a
    bowl. It started with all different mugs, but as the cabinet filled up,
    I expanded to plates, bowls, and serving dishes. I can now set a table
    with each piece on it all by different artists.


    And now to discover that Jim's aunt had the same idea of setting the
    table with all different tea cups. The aesthetic is different, but the
    idea is the same.
