Welcome to the latest Tea Cup Tuesday post.
This week I have selected one of my favourites; a commemorative set from the Jubilee of Queen Victoria in 1897, so this was her Diamond Jubilee.
I can't recall where I bought the teacup and saucer, it might have been the local antique hot spot of the South West of Engand - Honiton.
A few years later, after buying the tea cup and saucer I saw for sale in Honiton the delightful tea pot stand and the tea pot. I remember thinking it wasn't actually what I wanted; at the time I was looking for saucers and plates to decorate above the picture rail in our lounge, but I knew that if I didn't get them I would regret it. I bought them and they came home with me and now live in our lounge, in a house built the year before the Jubilee in 1897.
