An Autumn Teacup

As this is the first 2015 Autumn Teacup Tuesday, I have chosen to feature a non-pastel teacup.

Paragon Rose Tea Cup Saucer

A deep dark rose is the main color.  Not quite burgandy nor red.  The rim has a ever-so slight scalloped edge trimmed in gold which then flows down the sides in a filigree design.

Center of cup and saucer is a traditional floral bouquet motif which displays nicely when serving tea.

  1. Jill, your Paragon is a real stunner! I love all its attributes and yes, being able to see pretty posies on the bottom while sipping tea is always a treat. Thanks so much for sharing and joining me for tea. Enjoy the rest of your week.



    • Hi Sandi, I must admit that I did enjoy taking photos of this Paragon today. I very much enjoying sharing my cups on your wonderful blog. Thank you for hosting. May you have a good week. Regards, Jill >


    • Thank you Margie. I am definitely attracted to Paragon. Most of my cups have the wide rim with flowers or some color in the interior. Thank you for visiting. Jill

    Your paragon teacup is a beauty and yes, I’d love to see the flowers at the bottom of the cup, while sipping my tea.
    I also loved your darling pumpkin stitchery in your previous post!
