Colclough Tea-Cups & Autumn
As I perused my teacup collection today I realized some of my teacups may vary greatly in color, but their shapes and handles were remarkably alike. It appears they are all made from the same mold, doesn't it ?
This ivy teacup is perfect for Christmas table-settings and teas, don't you think ?
Although I do not have the matching saucer, this teacup and saucer seem to go together well, and the delicate yellow with blossoms makes me happy.
This is one of a set of 4 teacups that are favorites of mine. The pale robin's egg blue with delicate gold scroll flowers is one I use frequently.
This must be the reason all of these teacups are so similar, they are all made by Colclough * . "They ( Colclough China ) were the first company to produce fine bone china for the every day market which was marketed by the piece, ruling out the need for large sets to be purchased first." ~'Focus On Colclough'
One of my very favorite teacups though was made by one of my granddaughters and presented to me as a birthday card this month. I think she knows I love chickens AND teacups !
Join these ladies too for even more cozy tea-times and lovely teacups ~
