Butter Yellow


This Tuesday I am displaying a butter yellow and creamy white teacup with a graceful lady as a welcomed guest.

This English-made cup and saucer set is a recent addition (within the past year) to my collection. I could not resist the flared design and lovely interior. The gold gilding compliments the wide rim and subtle curves.

What company you might ask made this set? It is Foley Bone China.  The backstamp dates it to the years 1945-1963. I do not own many Foley cups, but I can assure you that I shall be on the lookout for more.

The art deco lady figurine was found at a local antique shop two weeks ago.  How could I refuse her $18 price tag.  She is handpainted and arrived from Japan. Her deco style is from the 1930s, however, I do now know when she was born made.

She is so fashionable attending this tea in her slinky, butter-yellow gown and matching wide-brimmed hat.


Your are welcome to join us and the others at:
Happy Thanksgiving to our friends in Canada!

  3. You collect ladies and tea cups! You must be perfect in every way! Those are two of my soft spots. It is very hard to pass them up when I see them. Have a wonderful week. Thanks so much for sharing these beauties with us. Blessings, Martha


  4. I recognize your cup and saucer because I had one like it I sold at my shop! I love Foley pieces and you have a beauty. Your figurine is really fun! Lovely and so glad you shared at Friends Sharing Tea which I am now back to with the end of summer!


  5. Hi Jill! Thanks for visiting me last week (I finally am coming by to see you!) I really like your new (to you) teacup with yellows. I don't have a Foley set–maybe I should add that to my list since this is so lovely. It is a perfect match to your Japanese art deco lady. She looks like she would be fun to have to tea!
