Drop Dead Gorgeous English Cabinet Cup And Saucer

Is this gorgeous or what!!!! I just added this Grosvenor cabinet cup and saucer to Antiques And Teacups. I just LOVE it!

Why cabinet, you ask????  Because it was so beautiful and well made it spent most of it's life in a china cabinet. A show off piece for sure. The color is a deep cobalt blue and white and all the gold overlay and gold trim is hand painted with burnished gold rims and cup foot. Really outstanding! The teacup is also slightly over sized which makes for an even more satisfying cuppa. 

Just had to share it!  You can see more photos and infor at this clickable link:

Sunny on the Olympic Peninsula in Sequim today...bit coolish and turning leaves. One of the days I am so blessed to be living here. Get out and enjoy the autumn colors....unless you are in southern California which is having a heat wave....if so stay in & stay cool!
