all the pretty tea cups

PurplemoonJanuary 24, 2011

If you like pretty teacups and saucers, or collect them,

you have got to see this gal's collection of 3-footed ones!

I don't think I've ever even noticed such a thing, but they are wonderful. I am always drawn to pretty cups and saucers when I go to the antique mall (never see any in my GW). But I make myself not buy them 99.9% of the time as I DO NOT NEED another collection. I think I have just 3 or 4....yes, I know, technically 3 or more is a collection.


I think cups and saucers are so neat in holiday decorating and I'll use some for the Spring holidays if I can. Anyway, hope you enjoy seeing this collection of 3-footed tea cups as much as I did.

I'll stop on the blog stuff now, LOL.

hugs, Karen

Nice collection..
I like how she got started after inheriting her Grandmother's collection. Now she's got quite a collection herself! I love toile, and was drawn to the 'Matchy Tea Set' with the pretty toile pattern.
Like you ..I have a few of my own, but don't need to start a new collection!
I enjoyed looking at this - thanks Karen.

Karen, I enjoyed looking at her collection. I have a few teacups as well. After looking at this post I realized one of mine is 3 legged. It is really pretty, it has a violets on it. I WILL NOT look for any more...that way it will be special!!!

I know the cups that sit up like on a pedestal are usually more expensive than the flat teacups, so I imagine the three footed ones are even more so.

I have collected over a dozen teacups and saucers mostly because they had pretty floral designs on them. Didn't really mean to start a collection, they were just too pretty to leave behind! LOL

Okay, I'll confess to another collection,(2 actually). About a third of the teacups were my grandmothers and another third from when I was a little girl. I haven't added to it in years, same with the cordial/shot glasses. I pulled out these two 3-legged ones and then I noticed there are two large ones in there with three legs also.

Oh WOW, frou! Beautiful collections! And displayed so nicely! That's really cool that you have "memories" with them!

I have 1 cup & saucer from my Mom which came from California from a Great-Gr Aunt (who I never met). It's very fancy like many of yours! TFS! Jeanne S.

Nice tea cup collection Karen. I don't think I had paid attention to the footed ones before. Thanks for sharing this with us.

Frou, you have so many collections and they are all beautiful. How do you keep everything clean? I keep using different ones on my tables to help keep up.

Wonderful collection Frou, the cordials are pretty.
Is that an eye wash cup I spied there?
I love the tea cups.
Isn't nice when memories come with our collections?
