Old China Tea Cups

I love rummaging through charity shops and car boot sale for old china tea cups. I have a very small collection which have been displayed above my kitchen cabinets. They are so beautiful and bring a touch of gentle elegance to my modern kitchen.

Whilst browsing I came across this beautiful Alfred Meakin serving dish. I fell in love with the hexagonal shape and it fitted in just right with the tea cup, Its in great condition and would grace any dinner table.

Love the design on that serving dish. Don't you ever want to use them?

I love thrift shopping for the thrill of the hunt. Haven't been lately so must get off my duff! You found some lovely china.

xo, Bonnie

I used to have a small collection of different sets of Mikasa cups and saucers... there was an outlet near my law school and my boyfriend at the time collected them and got me started. I had to abandon the collection during one of the three cross-country moves I made within one year, though.

Yours is lovely.

What lucky thrift store finds. I don't seem to find teacups.
