Time for another Tea Time Tuesday with Sandi at Rose Chintz Cottage!
This is a miniature tea cup. It stands about 2" high.
This cup has a gold rim, and the pattern is either grapes or wisteria. I'm leaning toward grapes.
The saucer is flower shaped. The mark says that it was made in Portugal. That's all that I was able to figure out. My husband lived in Brazil for six months before we were married, but he doesn't remember much of the language, so that doesn't help. Oh well.
This is one of the first cups that my mom gave to me when I started collecting tea cups. I think I did because my mom had so many beautiful cups! Most of them are mine now. My sister didn't have much interest in them.
Thanks for visiting, and be sure to check out the other tea parties!
