Tea Time Tuesday hosted by Rose Chintz Cottage

Tea Time Tuesday
Rose Chintz Cottage

I would love to present this beautiful trio left to my husband by his paternal grandmother.

Royal Doulton
Made in England
Bone China

This beautiful cup, saucer and plate is in outstanding condition.
No chips, cracks or crazing.
It's feather light and a joy to drink from.

The pattern and colours are simply exquisite.

The pattern continues inside the cup with a border.

Tea Time Tuesday hosted by Artful Affirmations

     Hello tea cup lovers!

Tea Time Tuesday

hosted by

Terri at Artful Affirmations
(I'm teacup number 33 EllenaElizabeth)
This cute trio is coming to you all the way from Australia.
 It began its life in Germany and has ended up gracing my sideboard.
What a trip!
It's made by Villeroy and Boch and is number 1748.

The buttery yellow colour along
with the black and white toile pattern
 spoke to me the second I saw it.

My cup sports a farmer leaning on his crook
and a country maid getting water from a brook.
There are also sheep, cattle and a dog.

The bread and butter plate depicts a country gentleman hunter
offering his hound a drink of water from the lid of his flask. 
His rifle, hunting bag and lunch are also shown.

I hope you have enjoyed my offering to
Tea Time Tuesday
because I have enjoyed showing you my lovely trio.
I appreciate it anew as I have closely looked at it so I could describe it for you.
Now I love it even more!
