Royal Stafford Berkeley Rose for Teacup Tuesday, Rudyard Kipling tea poem

Teacups are a favorite part of my life...to admire and to drink from as well as my livelihood at Antiques And Teacups! I am sharing this one for Teacup Tuesday with  Rose Chintz Cottage and Martha's Favorites and Terri's Teacup Tuesday. Can't get enough teacups! The cup and saucer is in the Berkeley Rose pattern by Royal Stafford, England and oh, so pretty!

To see more about this teacup visit:
Royal Stafford Berkley Rose Teacup

Royal Stafford China, England was a division of Thomas Poole and Gladstone, formerly Thomas Poole and Gladstone China Ltd. The Royal Stafford name dates back to 1912, but this is a later example dating to the early 1950s. I love the elegant shape, lush roses and sponged gold trim. Sigh...don't you just love beautiful china?

We had a kettle; we let it leak:
Our not repairing made it worse.
We haven't had any tea for a week...
The bottom is out of the Universe.
~Rudyard Kipling

Have a wonderful day visiting all the other teacup parties. I can't wait to see all the offerings! Cheers!
