Help identifying moss rose teacup

Posted by CakePie (My Page) on

I've inherited some teacups from my great grandmother, and I have searched and searched to find out what two of them are.

The cups are unmarked they have a kind of scalloped feel on the cup itself and on the bottom. They have gold on the top and the handle, no motif inside and they are sort of see trough if I hold them up to the light.

The only thing I was able to find out is that the pattern looks like "moss rose".

Sorry for the poor image, I'll try to take a better one soon!

I haven't yet seen any cup that looked like the two I have.

Ah, thank you for the link. I have looked there however and there was nothing to find. Sigh. Appears "my cups" were never really popular.
