Floral Tea

I absolutely adore this little Plant Tuscan China set.  Just three cups, saucers and side plates, and so pretty and delicate.



My friend spotted it in the charity shop and pointed out to me - she knows my taste so well!



The cups, saucers and plates are all gently shaped rather than completely round.



The colours match my tablecloth perfectly.



The little orange dots are slightly raised and just set off the pale, gently colours.



This has to be one of my favourites ........... so far!

 Love, Liz

Looking forward to catching up with everyone else's treasures at Flea Market Finds.

Oh, Dearest Liz.
Wow, what a lovely Floral Tea cups♡♡♡ 
The flowers remind me of cherry blossom shape; and your explanation is so true that gently shaped. I loved the way you explained "The little orange dots are slightly raised and just set off the pale, gently colours."
Thank you for sharing your lovely tea cup.

Love you always, xoxo Miyako*

Ooh what lovely pastel colours. My first teaset is a pastel Tuscan fine bone china set. My sister in law bought it from a second hand shop for my birthday years ago. It's great when people know your tastes so well.
