COLLECTING ENGLISH BONE CHINA CUPS AND SAUCERS


Today I thought I'd share some of my favorite
 English Bone China cups and saucers. 
 I display them in this old armoire my husband worked
removing the doors and painting shabby chic:





These are my two newest ones below - hand painted.  The one on top is a Rosina and the one below is "Carnival" Royal Albert Crown China (before 1939 with that backstamp)


On the top left is another Rosina:




In the back area you can see my Germany tea set 
I have shared before with the wildflowers:


This cup and saucer below is a Tuscan and I have two like this
 plus two others
 with gold instead of silver.









I am fond of Sadler teapots (like many of you) but the one to the right below is a Roslyn and the tea cup below it matches it:




I do love the hand painted ones:  like this Delphine on the left....

the one to the right is a Royal Standard: 





Many collect this pattern below - Royal Albert "Serena":





I know my tea blogging friends will recognize many of these from various posts I have done.

Good morning Bernideen,
How lovely to see all your pretty teacups and teapots. What a fabulous cabinet you have to display them. (Many of mine are hidden away). I like the way you elevated some on the cake stands.
It is a joy to see many old favorites.
Happy Day, Ruthie

I honestly think that is one of the most beautiful displays I have ever seen in someone's home. It is shop worthy! I love the old converted armoire AND the pale pink color of it. You collection is amazing! xo Diana
