Tea Cup Tuesday – Almost Snap!

Welcome to Teacup Tuesday!
This little beauty is part of another set inherited from my Grandmother. The set comprises of cups, saucers and side plates. I don’t know if there was a teapot, sugar bowl and milk jug.
Then about five years ago, in a small antique here, in the South Devon seaside town where I live, my Mum spotted this.

It matched the original set, although was much smaller, and made by a different company. In view of the experience of regret I felt with the Flying Pheasant set Mum bought the set for me as a birthday present. The smaller set comprises of a very sweet milk jug and sugar bowl, a small teapot and side plates, cups and saucers. It now sits along side the original set as a complimentary set rather than an addition to my original, treasured set.
