It's another tea cup Tuesday TCT over with Martha and Terry these ladies each week invite us all to show our cups, china etc. However, this week I thought I would show these beautiful coffee cups I bought. Made of pottery/porcelain I'm not at all sure. I would really like your help though as I bought them in Scarborough at a charity stall and I know there is a castle there and also one in Whitby not far a way, any way these were a mere £2 for 6 coffee cups and darling saucers too! I loved them I immediately and I really like the way the saucers kind of hug the dainty CCs, I also thought I could make some Christmas gifts from them (see further down) my question is, do any of you know where these coffee cups are from? the initials are CC on the front.
Here is a close up of the front and this is the marking they have on the bottom of each cup & saucer does any one recognise them? They are in perfect condition not at all worn and still in the original box (although only the B mark on the box not where they are from)
Any way hope you can help out with finding out where this lovely set came from. Now I said I wanted to make some gifts out of them didn't I? To be honest I don't know if want to part with them ;0) However, just in case I do I made one gift to see what it looked like.
Here it is! I have used my melt pot to melt some old Christmas candles that have glitter in and smell of cinnamon and other Christmas spices, as I have six I thought I would try one out, I will of course also make a gift box for it and perhaps put some Christmas tinsel in with it. I try not to mention Christmas on my blog until November but this is getting more difficult, if I am going to make these do have to think a head lol. So please do go and visit all the other tea cups and if you do happen to know where this lovely set is from I would be ever so grateful if you left me a message. Love Dawn xx
