The month of June is a perfect time to share a pretty pink vintage bridal teacup.
Note the delicate border of wedding bells entwined with ribbon.
A small bouquet of flowers with a good luck horseshoe makes the motif. The cup includes a small inscription, “To the Bride.”
Perhaps a few teacup collectors will recognize the popular wide cup shape made by Paragon. The width nicely shows off the the center design and looks pretty at a place setting.
Pink and gray are such a pretty color combination. Can you see the difference in the shades of pink on the saucer and cup. I wonder how that happened. Does china fade or is it a maker’s flaw? I can’t be fussy as it was a $10 bargain at a church antique sale.According to the double black mark, it dates ca. 1939-1949.
I have another Paragon bridal cup which I will share at a later date.
I have been absent several months and was unable to post although I enjoyed peaking at other blogs and leaving a comment or two. During this time, I updated my blog and transferred to the WordPress platform of which I am liking so far.
It is wonderful to share a cup of tea this week with:
