A Precious Aynsley Teacup

Aynsley at the Castle

Today I would like to feature a very dainty and extremely delicate Aynsley original Bone China Teacup made in England. 

 The design shape was registered in 1899.  

  The lovely pattern has a white textured background with 4 pyramids of fine embossed lines coming from the rim of the teacup.
Inside of the cup are more pretty pink roses.
The handle of the cup has unique curves.

The gold-trimmed saucer has a beautiful but unusual shape.

The tea set was once my mother's but unfortunately there are only four cups but six tea plates.

Thank you for having tea time at the Castle today!



  1. Quite a unique shape, like a flower, and the pink roses are sweet. I am admiring your tablecloth, it's lovely with your treasured china.

  2. Hello Lavender Cottage,
    Thank you so much for commenting. I do appreciate your opinion. Your blogspot is very beautiful. I love the mauve and purple on your template. I hope to learn how to do that eventually.

    I also love peonies (as you mentioned in a previous blog). I am looking to buy some pink ones. They are gorgeous.

    Take care,

  3. Elles sont magnifiques ces tasses à thé!
    quelle belle forme unique!
    et de ravissantes roses
    bises de France

  4. Good morning Karen,
    Oh my, how beautiful! Your teacup is simply lovely with its unique shape and flower shaped saucer. I adore the sweet roses sprinkled on the set and I love the posies inside the cup too. How wonderful that you have all those pieces. They are very precious having belonged to your mother. That is a gorgeous table cloth! Would love to sip some tea with you. Thank you for coming to tea and sharing with us. Hope you have a beautiful day.


  5. That is a gorgeous pattern! It is so pretty and delicate with its sweet pink roses. Blessings, Pamela

  6. Hello Karen,
    Your tea time today is lovely! What a gorgeous china pattern! Those little rosebuds are so sweet. That handle too is so elegant. You are lucky to have these beauties in your collection.
    Those flowers are stunning as well!

  7. These oldies do have a special look and feel! The shapes, the delicate rosebuds, all so lovely!
    Thanks for sharing this family treasure.

  8. Hi Karen: Your table is so beautiful. Love the Aynsley tea cups you shared today. Everything looks so pretty. Thanks for sharing. Blessings, Martha

  9. Hi Karen, that's a very pretty tea set. I love the tea cups that have something special about them, like the curve of the handle or the angled sides. It makes them even more special. :) Have a lovely day.

  10. I see your beautiful sofa in the background there. This teacup is one the loveliest I have seen. The table cloth and setting are wonderful! I am so pleased you linked to "Friends Sharing Tea".

  11. What a beautiful treasure from your Mom! I love the scalloped edges of the trio! A beautiful setting!

  12. Hey Karen! I popped in via Pinterest ... someone had pinned a pic of your lovely Aynsley teacup. I have an Aynsley teaset, well, part of one, that has this same pretty rose pattern but is a different shape cup and round places and saucers. I have the sandwhich plate, slop bowl, milk jug and three trios. I hope one day to find a fourth trio ... in the meantime ... its fun looking! :0) Thanks for sharing your pics - Bear Hugs! KRIS
