Tea Cup Tuesday Blue and Whites

Although Blue Willow is first in my heart, any blue and white china will capture my attention.


This little cup and saucer was only $2 in a junk store, but it was flawless and sturdy. It is nice for an ordinary cup and saucer.




























This set is marked Nasco
Lakeview/Japan, and it is
a nice scenic
 cup and saucer set.









The various shades of blue make this cup below  interesting and reminiscent of Willow Ware. It is marked Royal Winchester, Avon Paisley, England.














Another set from a junk store for few dollars, this set is marked only Made in Japan, and I am sure it pretty new. However, it has a lacy edge, nice color, and the saucer has a deeper well making it useful for drinking from if necessary. It is marked only Made in Japan.

You have some real bargains there, and each one is really lovely. Some of them may even be older than you think.
What a beautiful collection of blue and whites.

I have some red and some blue transferware but after seeing so many beautiful tea scapes and table settings done with it, I have developed a whole new appreciation for it and I am actively on the hunt for more pieces!!!

Isn't it just amazing the treasures one finds at a "junk" store? That is a very lovely cup and saucer and I have to agree that in the summer few things beat blue and white!
Have a wonderful week....

These are all lovely. I like the first and last one the best. They may have come from a ‘junk store’, but they are anything but ‘junk’ and at such amazing prices. I love $2 finds finds. Take care.

Your blue and white china is lovely. I really like that Nasco scenic teacup. You found some wonderful pieces at the "junk" store.
