Three or More Tuesday – Rose Teacups and Saucers

Three or More Tuesday is sponsored by Tam at The Gypsy's Corner. Please visit her for more participating posts.

In preparing for Mother’s Day last year I bought various floral dishes and cups and saucers with pink rose motifs. Since my elderly mother loves pink, I bought a few itemss in Bavarian and English china.
Along the way since then I have accumulated a csmall ollection of mostly pink rose-themed cups and saucers. They are kept in a corner cabinet in the dining room. The Bavarian dishes are on the top shelf, (with an English teapot), and the second shelf holds Royal Albert "Lady Carlyle" dishes including tea set:
Here are some placed on a rack on a side table for Mother’s Day 2008:
This is the first pink teacup and saucer I bought. It is a Lefton footed teacup with an iridescent finish.
Then I bought a set of cups and saucers and matching dessert plates. These were made in Bavaria, Germany:

This lovely pattern also caught my eye – Noritake Gala Contessa
Here are four rose-themed cups and saucers on the cup rack:

Thank you for stopping by today, and do visit again soon!
