Teacup Tuesday

As this is the last official Tuesday for Summer 2015, I would like to share a sunshine yellow cup and saucer that was a recent find at an estate sale.

Paragon Yellow Cup Flower Handle

Personally, I think it is a wonderful treasure as it not only has a flower handle, but an added bonus is the dessert plate which makes it a trio.


An older cup made by Paragon with an earlier backstamp that is circa 1933-1936.  In fine letters, it is marked “by appointment.” According to Pristine Antiques, the royal warrants were granted to Paragon in 1933. Earlier hallmarks, without the official queen’s appointment, is a star as best that I can reference. I shall be on the lookout for one of those.


I love the fluted-shaped cup, saucer and dessert plate with the scalloped edges.  Note the thin and delicate porcelain that is carefully trimmed in gold.


I am happy to be back sharing my teacups with Martha’s Favorites, the Rose Chintz Cottage, and Bernideen’s Tea Time Blog.

  3. Your beautiful teacup immediately caught my eye on Sandi’s linky party. Such an amazing Paragon! The beautiful floral handle is the icing on the cake. What an extraordinary find. After Shelley, Paragons are my favorite. Enjoy this work of art.
