Teacup Tuesday – Pink Beleek


Tea Cup Tuesday, co-hosted by Martha at Martha’s Favorites and Terri at Artful Affirmations.

Last week I shared a soft yellow Beleek cup and saucer. This week it is a pale pink set.
I’ve placed today’s teacup and saucer on a pink crystal platter, which I received as a gift back in summer 1988. It is made by Mikasa and is the "Rosella" pattern.




Like last week’s cup, this one is also shell-shaped. It is Beleek’s "Neptune" pattern, Made in Ireland.


Notice the shape of the saucer and of the footed cup. The handle looks like pink coral.


Note the tiny shell feet on the cup bottom.
