Tea Cup Tuesday Adderleys Spray No. 96 Teacup Trio


I love old china...have loads of it both in my home and in my shop. Receiving my English grandmother's teapot and tea cups at age 16 is what got me into antiques and  not too long after got me into the antiques and collectibles business. The are such practical, holdable works of art and joy!





This is a teacup trio or cup and saucer with matching plate that was made by Adderleys, England between 1906 and 1926. The pattern is Spray No. 96, and is rosettes of roses, pansies and forget me nots on molded bone china with gold trim. I just love the chintzy feel of the pattern. So feminine and pretty. I just know my tea will taste better in this!!! I can just picture an Edwardian tea party with the table set with this china and the ladies in their long dresses discussing their beaux and the current gossip over afternoon tea. Lovely!
