Tea Time 13 - Two Christmas Tea Cups

I don't run  across Christmas tea cups often when thrifting.  

This tea cup "Royal Albert Yuletide" is a beauty with the orange-red poinsettia pattern.   I paid $12 or $15 at an antique shop several years ago.





My other Christmas tea cup is made by Lefton.  I just picked this up in November at a consignment shop for $4.



It has hand painted holly.  It doesn't say on the mark, but probably made in Japan.




The Christmas tea cups are on display with the vintage angels in the desk hutch.

My next post will be a Christmas tour of my holiday decorations.

  9. Your Christmas teacups are lovely, Carlene. I only have one which I found at a yard sale last year. Would love to find one with a Christmas flower on it. They are hard to come by around here.
    Very nice to sip tea from this time of year for you and a friend. Thank you for coming to tea and Merry Christmas to you and all those you those.

    Blessings,
