Tea cup Tuesday 27

I hope you have had a good weekend. And wecome to  Tea Cup Tuesday This C&S is a tiny little thing, yes the guilt is very worn but I still think it is just lovely.

As you can see it's from Bavaria there are no chips or cracks any where just a little worn, I can imagine how beautiful it was when new and how loved it has been to go through so much wear. What is this cup used for? it isn't how I imagine a coffee/espresso cup to look. However, it is small.

I managed to get a few of these and a sugar bowl too so very delicate and blue and pink in colour and instead of a gold edge in gilt it's a lovely brown colour.

Obviously china this is the bottom of the sugar bowl all are in perfect condition I really have no more room to put any china in,  and I have stopped looking I have a few pieces you haven't seen and if I see some special ones then I may squeeze them into some space lol I have thoroughly enjoyed playing and looking at all your stunning TC&S and feeling of your enthusiasm it's very catching and thanks to all of you who stop by for a nosy at my not so perfect collection. Love Dawn xx

Hello Dawn,
Your two cups today are lovely. I am partial to gold, so I am really loving your first cup. It is so dainty. I wonder what they drank in Bavaria in such a small cup. It could be an early 20th century cup.
Thank you for sharing your cups with us today.

Really pretty cups! The wear on the gold doesn't take away from the beauty at all.
