Delicate Florals and Blue Rose Doily

I was so excited! I found this gorgeous teacup on ebay!

I just HAD to have it!

The blue doily was a garage sale find locally this past weekend, and it has a sister in brown and pink.

Both are so unique!

The teacup interior is beautiful and delicate, but the outside is just a single gold line.

I forgot to take a picture of the mark on the bottom!
It's Limoges, made in France, and has a number marked 817
Also, initials of AOH, but this set is NOT hand painted : (
It's a transfer! Needless to say, it's pretty!

Be sure and get your posts ready to join us here for Pearls and Lace Thursday!

I hope to see you all!

I'm joining all of the parties below, and hope you will go and check them all out!

There are some fabulous blogs out there! Have fun!

Hi Doni,
Thanks for stopping by on my blog.
Now, what a wonderful Limoges cup this - the exterior being blue and the flowers within and on the plate. Teacups are such wonders of craftmanship.
I enjoy your miniature dachsies. There is a real one sitting close to me right now, they are so adorable.
Have a nice day!
