Today is Teacup Thursday with Miss Spenser! She and her mother, Donna Hardin run Miss Spenser's Tea Room in New Virginia, Iowa....click here to visit them!
I have a collection of mix and match tea wares and these cups and saucers are part of an assortment: two are Bavarian and two from Germany! I really am more of a mix and match person. I find it easy to work within certain color choices and blend things together. I also prefer the variety and more casual appeal.
I just saw a sugar bowl in the above design in one of my books or magazines but can't remember where I saw it!
These with the blue bands are from Germany and the ones with the black cameo design are from Bavaria...
Every antique mall around has pieces of formerly loved china and you might consider embracing them! I am even open to mixing different cups with different saucers! How about you?
