An American Beauty

I did it again... Another set of Tea Cups I could not leave behind.  They were just there waiting for me, looking so sad and lonely..   The colors and the flowers were so soft and delicate.  So femine..  I could not believe that noone had snatch them up yet..  So when I saw the price and learned that they were actually made in the US, I just had to have them. 
These tea cups were manufactured by the china company Homer Laughlin from East Liverpool Ohio. They have been manufacturing pottery since 1871.    My pattern is called Eggshell Georgian circa 1940..  Not rare, just beautiful.  Please take a look..
Hope you all have a wonderful weekend.  The temperatures are supposed to be pretty nice here in our area.  Perfect for taking my little pooch to the park and antiquing..

  2. Love it! I would have taken her home too, looking so pretty and lonely, now she's found a great and loving home! My Mil left us her wedding china,(72 years old dishes) a set of 24 places, with 4 serving pieces of each and it's made in the USA, just because I'm American and I'd be so happy to have her and yes, I'm specially glad I have it, besides that it's lovely and was hers.
    Enjoy your weekend.

  5. Very cute and genteel with those soft pastel colours. I am sure a chamomile tisane or a green or white tea would look delightful in them!

  20. Homer Laughlin has produced some lovely patterns over the years and this is one of the prettiest! The pastel blue rim with the flowers is just so lovely and I know why these treasures came to live with you. Love the pearls and the darling cherub in your sweet photos of the teacup and saucer.

    Thanks, Pam

  28. Love this post!
    I have this same set of vintage dishes. I found a woman who was selling a complete set of 12 with serving pieces! I bought them all. I usually favor pink.... but, fell in love with these for their soft, pretty shade of blue.
    Thank you for sharing your lovely collection with us!
    Will visit again soon.
