Welcome to Teacup Tuesday at the Castle.
Vintage Foley Bone China Teacup 1850
I have had this dainty teacup ever since I first started collecting china over 40 years ago. It is stunning and a lovely pale pink colour, with a delicate blue flower and accented with deep red flowers.
The pink background has raised embossing sensitive to the touch on both the cup and saucer.
The cup is an unusual shape. It has a gold trimmed pedestal base and a petite top rim. The saucer has an intricate gold gilt.
I believe that the 1850 is the style name, not the date. On the cup in gold is the number 3813m.
Look closely at the beautiful pattern and colours.
The handle has is a simple, yet elegant look about it.
I have never seen another teacup quite like this particular style and I will treasure it forever!
Thanks for visiting Teacup Tuesday at the Castle!
