This is one of the largest teacups that I have ever seen not including the fun teacup ride at the Disney parks. This first photo looks like an ordinary cup and saucer sitting near some flowers.
View the photo below that shows its size with one of my regular English cups and saucers. Picture is taken in front of my wiegela bush.
This tea cup planter was a garage sale bargain a few weeks ago. A lucky find at $3. The seller said it had been used outside last year. I have yet to plant anything in it as I am not comfortable adding dirt. Maybe I could set a pot of flowers inside. Any suggestions are kindly appreciated.
Yellow is my favorite color and I love the overall chintz pattern with pink flowers. A cute planter like so many other new novelty ones that are ‘made in China.’ I think it is ceramic. Here is another photo of a regular cup compared to the planter’s ‘saucer.’
I am delighted to share the largest teacup in my collection with other tea bloggers this week in no particular order:
I appreciate Ruth at Antiques and Teacups mentioning that next week is the official national celebration of Queen Elizabeth II special 90th birthday. I plan on sharing English china and that actually is not hard for me to do.
