Apple Blossom Teacup, Ham And Pecan Tea Sandwiches

Hi there. Still dealing with allergies, so this is a short post. I am joining Teacup Thursday with Miss Spenser today.

This is a Sltmann, Bavaria W. Germany porcelain teacup and sauce with a pretty apple blossom pattern. Some of the early apple blossoms are popping out here, and I'm sure we are way behind other areas of the country. I love the pretty shape of the cup and saucer and fresh blossoms. The handle is a pretty shape too. The Bavarian potters have a long and distinguished history of making wonderful items. The teacup and saucer was made between 1946-1975 according to the mark and is available at my Antiques And Teacups. Click on the photos for more info.

I wanted to share this wonderful tea sandwich recipe I found at epicurious.com

I tried them and they were great. Forgot to make a photo...remembered when we had an empty plate!!!! NEXT time I'll get it together! Have a great day.

Don't forget to stop and smell the flowers, but if you're like me...don't do it unless you've used your Flonase!!!


  1. Sweet to have apple blossoms on the teacups now in the spring. The sandwiches I will try to do. They look really good! I wish you a nice weekend! Zinnia

  2. I love the tea cup. I have a beautiful apple tree in the yard that blossoms every year. "Hello, Tinker"..aren't you a beautiful cat. Thanks for dropping by today. Deb

  3. Pretty German teacups. I'm loving the sanwiches for tea, I will make them for sure for my next tea party. Thank you for sharing.

  4. What a beautiful Apple Blossom Set. The recipe looks delicious. Love for you to share on Simple & Sweet Fridays.


  5. That is quite the lengthy period for producing a teacup. It is obvious why it became a favorite. They look just like the blossoms on our plum trees.


Thanks for visiting and we love to hear from you! We read every comment. If my husband's health permits, I love to visit andreply. Have a wonderful day and a cuppa tea always at hand! :)
