Teacup Thursday With Miss Spenser, Rosina Teacup with Shamrocks

Happy Teacup Thursday with Miss Spenser. I have tried to find green teacups to share but it's a bit difficult. I tend to be blue obsessed, so it takes some looking. But...I found this one that has green shamrocks as well as other spring flowers so I thought it was quite suitable!












This teacup is by Rosina, a favorite maker. The design is put on with a grey transfer, then the design is hand colored and fired and then another artisan applies enamel paint accents. The enamel is raised so there is a textural, 3D effect which I love. And the shamrocks are great for the upcoming St. Patrick's Day. I have my corned beef all ready to make with cabbage, potatoes, onions and carrots. Lovely!!! That's comfort food! For more info about the Rosina Shamrocks and spring flowers teacup at Antiques And Teacups, click on the photo.


And perfect for your Irish Breakfast tea, here's a green tea tin from England. Makes me smile!
