My First Set of Tea Cups and Saucers

For this year’s present alone, I will forever love my parents dearly. I told them one of the most wonderful things that they could get me this holiday would be a pair of tea cups. I didn’t have anything fancy enough to offer anyone if I ever have the pleasure of having someone to tea, but I most certainly do now!

The saucers are so beautiful! While it's the same print as the cups, I almost adore them more as you can see the entire picture in one glance.
The coloring of the artwork is gorgeous!
I love the little detail on the inside rim. It's only on one side, so you only see it if you drink out of the cup a certain way.
I didn't notice the handles until I went to take photos! I love all the little details that went into the artwork on this piece.
What’s even more amazing to me is that these were made in England by Johnson Bros., which closed their British shops in 2003 and sent their work to China because it was cheaper. It’s wonderful to have something that will forever be so sentimentally loved for so many reasons!
