Vintage Thingies Thursday: Tea Anyone?

Five or six years ago, I bought this greenware tea cup and saucer at an antique store for less than $20. (A splurge for me!) I added it to my pink and green tea cup collection.
According to this site, W.H. Grindley and Co. of England made this cup and saucer to somewhere between 1891-1914.

I feel a little pampered when drinking my tea out of pretty little cups.

That is absolutely gorgeous. I can't get over how cool it is. Do you have a picture of your whole collection? I've been buying tea cups recently--I don't even drink tea, but they are so cute I can't resist.

What a lovely teacup! I too, feel great when I drink my tea out of a pretty cup. One COULD drink coffee from it also, but tea is so much prettier! :)

I LOVE this cup and saucer. I'm learning to like the color green more and more, and especially this shade.
