Victoria, Golden Bramble Teacup And Fall Glory

It's my favorite day...Tuesday...to share with all the wonderful tea realted blogs...many of whom are listed at the bottom of the page.

I was thrilled to have found this gorgeous teacup by Royal Stafford, England made between 1940-1952. The Golden Bramble is a favorite pattern of mine. It is what can truly be called a "cabinet" cup and saucer, meaning you would display it in your china cabinet. The photos don't do it justice as the gold leaves, accents and trim can't be photographed well, but it is really beautiful...and perfect for fall!

For more info on the Golden Bramble teacup at Antiques And Teacups click on the photos.

I sat with my cup of tea and the September/October 2008 and 2009 issues of Victoria magazine to day and nibbled on my HobNob biscuit. We buy them by the case...HobNob Plain or Dark chocolate. Lovely! I so enjoy looking through the old Victorias.

This is from the November/December issue of Northwest Travel magazine. The photo is by Ross Martin taken in Seattle's arboretum.

And from an October English Country Living magazine

using old pudding molds and fence finials for decor.

Enjoy the tea realated parties below!

  1. A stunner of a cup and saucer! Love the colors - and yes - a nice fall cup. However, I would see it for summer, too because of the berries. Nice to use while serving a mixed berry pie!


  2. Beautiful teacup and lovely fall photos.

  3. Such a lovely pattern. Teacups are one of my weaknesses. I adore Victoria magazine too!

  4. Ruth, your teacup is simply stunning! Sipping tea and perusing the older Victoria magazines would be lovely. Thanks so much for sharing with us. Wishing you a delightful day.


  5. Beautiful teacup and saucer set! What a treasure to find it! Thanks for sharing it with us.

    Your day sounds SO relaxing! To sit with a favorite magazine, a hot cup of tea in a beautiful cup, and delicate, melt in your mouth biscuits - pure bliss!

    I have never heard of those biscuits -they sure sound yummy!
    Blessings on your day today,

  6. How pretty! I do love those berries! :)

    Have a great Tuesday!
