Tea Time 11 - Royal Windsor Demitasse

I am back to English bone china for today's Tea Time post, with a Royal Windsor demitasse cup and saucer in the Prairie Crocus pattern.


I found this lovely just last week at a local consignment shop for a whopping $4. It really would be a perfect springtime post, but I can't wait that long to show you.

The Prairie Crocus is the floral emblem of Manitoba. I didn't know that!



I am going to spin the saucer around so you can see the whole lovely saucer pattern.

Now that I have had over ten Tea Time posts, I have a confession to make... I have never ever had tea in any of the tea cups in my collection. I always use a mug for tea. I just admire my collection.



I just changed this mantel when I re-painted the living room last spring. This was my non-holiday mantel for over 10 years. I never tired of the tea cups.

  4. What a beautiful cup! It would fit right in with my collection! $4? Around here they go for $25-35--or more. So glad I inherited mine. I couldn't afford them otherwise.

  7. Your new teacup is pretty and worth sharing now. I think you should throw a tea party for a few friends and use some of the teacups. It's fun and a real girly party.

  13. No reason you should get tired of these. They are timeless. They create a beautiful bit of the dramatic showing themselves off across the mantle like that. Like a little teacup chorus line. A demure chorus line, of course.

  17. Hey Carlene... Super find.. for a sweet cup... It's very hard to find a crocus teaset so I think you've hit the jackpot especially with a $4.00 price tag.

    Your mantel and teacup display is so very unique and beautiful ...I wouldn't change it either, except for a relaxing cup of tea, then I put it back onto the mantle ( ha Ha)... No one would know ...Lovely post...Hugs

  20. Hello Carlene,
    Your new Prairies Crocus tea cup set is lovely! What a bargain it was too!
    Your mantle looks amazing like that. I can see why you have never tired of it.
    Btw, tea in a paper thin porcelain tea cup tastes amazing!
    No matter though, how every you like it : )
