Mother's Tea

I have a little set of china I picked up at Goodwill for $5 (for 13 pieces).  I have been trying to decide what each piece was meant for. 

There is no maker's mark on the bottom, but they look a little Japanese.  I put this little cup in this "saucer" and it looked very much like a tea set.  But, I am not sure.

What do you think?  Does it pass for a tea set.

  Whatever it is, I used it for a little Mother's Day tea for me.

I am loving the pattern and colors on it.  Thanks for viewing my tea!
This was a re-post from 2011.  I knew this spring was going to be crazy busy and it is!

Beautiful vignettes. Beautiful teacup and saucer too.

I think your set is for tea. Tea cups initially did not have handles and many Asian tea cups still don't. It is really a lovely pattern!

I think it's a really lovely set. I would use it for tea, too. And then, I might just rinse it out and enjoy a little fried rice soup to boot.

What a lovely teatime vignette with your lovely china teacup, beautiful linens and delicate dried rose buds scattered so artistically amidst your tableaux!

Thanks for the inspiration!

You got a real deal on your china no matter what the pattern. It is beautiful and so delicate looking. Don't you just love it when you find something exciting for just a little money? Everything looks just wonderful.

I can’t believe another week has gone by with another delightful tea party. I love how the tablecloth compliments the clours of your sweet teacup.
It would not be so enjoyable without you and your creative touch. I always look forward to seeing you as often as you can pop in.

How elegant and feminine! Enjoy the day!

Sandi@ Rose Chintz Cottage said...

Hi Sherry,
It certainly looks like a set to me. It is so very pretty too. I love the colours and the fact that the cup doesn't have a handle makes it very unique, I think. Thanks for coming to tea.

Just beautiful and such a good price! (Your Goodwill appears to have better prices than ours!)

curiositaellya said...

Tea in a beautiful tea cup like this one and a embroidery napkins are my favorite. They are looking so lovely!
Thanks for sharing.
