Teacup Tuesday

Good morning. Today I present this lovely peacock teacup. I thought he would like to go outside among the flowers and herbs. This is a very delicate fine china piece. Markings on the back say hand painted nippon. I don't remember where I got it. I think someone gave it to me. I feel so bad I do not remember who. I'm sure it was not a special occasion or I would have remembered. I love the delicate feel of these old hand painted cups. Only problem you really can't put a lot of tea in them so I never use them. Probably a good thing, I would not want to break one.
If you would like to see more teacups check out the official teacup Tuesday site at Martha's Favorites  for more entries.

  8. This is a lovely teacup. Very pretty colors. I posted a Nippon this week as well. 'Nippon' is a formal native word for 'Japan'. Just a fun fact. Take care.
