Teacup Tuesday, Queen Elizabeth II Coronation Teacup, Wreaths For the Door

Welcome to Teacup Tuesday. I am joining the blogs at the bottom of the post and others for this special tea themed blog party day.

I want to share a fabulous Aynsley, England teacup made to celebrate the coronation of Queen Elizabeth II in 1953.



I really love the dark cobalt blue background. There is applied raised enamel paint on the flag and other areas, and lots of burnished gold trim and overlay. Aynsley is always a wonderful manufacturer and they did a wonderful job on this special occasion teacup.

For more info on the teacup at Time Was Antiques, click on the photos.


This is a fall leaves wreth from the September/October 2008 issue of Victoria Magazine. I love Victoria and was a charter subscriber when they began back in 1988. I also subscribed when they started up again with a new publisher. My favorite!




And from my own front door, a wreath of  fabric leaves and filmy, metallic gold accented ribbon that I made. The white door made it difficult to photograph, but....




Here are the wonderful blog parties I am joining today. Please visit them and enjoy a wonderful day!

Hello Ruth,
You have shared a real gem! (at least to me!). I love commemorative china, and this cup has to be one of the best I have seen. The cobalt blue is really stunning, and I love the Queen's pic at the top there. The whole design is gorgeous! Thank you so much for showing it to us.
Hugs,
Terri
