Teacup Thursday with Miss Spenser's blog is always something to look forward to. I decided to share a teacup trio or cup and saucer with matching plate that was made by Paragon, England to celebrate the birth of Princess Margaret, the younger sister of Queen Elizabeth II in 1930 whose parents were King George VI and Queen Mary who became known in later life as the Queen Mum.
Paragon used parrots and a butter yellow color with hand applied enamel paint accents with a neat lobed, shaped cup and gold trim. The pattern was used also on oval saucers instead of round, with and without gold trim and with the hand painted colors differing by artist. I just love the parrots and the color makes me smile..it's so cheerful!
To read read more about the Princess Margaret teacup trio which is available at Antiques And Teacups, click on the photos.
Have fun visiting the other participants at Teacup Thursday with Miss Spenser's blog. I love the chance to meet new friends and have a cup of tea!
