"Tea for Two" on Tea Cup Tuesday!





Today's tea cup looks just like another pretty but run-of-the-mill rose cup and saucer doesn't it?

Well, there's something very distinct about this little beauty. When picked up from the saucer, it plays "Tea for Two!"  There's a musical component built right into the bottom of the cup.
















It came to me via Goodwill for $1.50!  When I got home,  the saucer dropped on the flagstone floor in our front entryway and smashed into numerous pieces.  However, using white glue and a ton of patience, I glued the saucer back together again.




















On the back of the saucer, it says the cup is Queen Anne and made in England.

The saucer cannot really be used to serve tea to someone but high up on the tea cup shelf, no one will notice all the repairs.

It's such a kick that the tea cup plays music, making it so unique.

HAVE YOU EVER HEARD OF A TEA CUP THAT PLAYS 'TEA FOR TWO?'

I hate when I drop something like that!! At least you could glue it back together and like you say on a shelf it looks great. I love that it plays tea for two...how cute.

Hi Susan: I love to see your smile when I come to your post. If I am feeling down at all, it makes me smile in my heart. You are precious to me. I just wanted to tell you that. Back to the cup, I have never seen a sing cup! How lucky are you to find that beauty? I am so sorry about the saucer. I love it, nothing plain about it. Blessings, Martha

Hi Susan :) I don't think I've ever heard of a teacup that plays that tune; how lucky of you to find this sweet treasure. I love the pretty pink roses on this cup and saucer. It's too bad about the saucer breaking, but fortunately you were able to put it back together again. It's definitely a keeper :)

Happy Teacup Tuesday!
Warmest hugs, Brenda

BECKY said...

Oh, Susan! What a beautiful cup! And I've never heard of one that is also a music box! That is so unique! I can't believe you took the time and had the patience to put the saucer all back to together. You did a wonderful job. It barely even shows in the photos! Just gorgeous!

That is a very pretty rose teacup. I've never seen one that plays music - how unique (and what a bargain).

What a find. I'm so sorry to hear it broke, but it is still lovely. I have heard of a teapot that played "Tea for Two", and a mug that played "Your Are My Sunshine", but never a teacup. Lovely Take care.

Have a wonderful week....
