Tea Cup Tuesday, is co-hosted by Martha at Martha’s Favorites and Terri at Artful Affirmations.
My teacup for this Tuesday was made in Ireland. This pattern is Belleek "Tridacna" [5th mark 1955-65], a lovely sea shell design.
The pale yellow cup and saucer feel so thin and so light, but it is strong porcelain. This thin irridescent porcelain is called parian china.
The handle is a delicate ring circle, with tiny branches at top and bottom.
Here I pair the exquisite cup and saucer with a Fleetwood vase with an irridescent glaze. This vase is designed as a tree trunk and is embellished with 22 kt. gold. On the tree branch is a golden squirrel holding a nut.
