Very Precious Teaset Collection

My contribution for Pink Saturday is this very precious teaset collection. I inherited from my late mom. :) They are part of 4 sets of teaset collection for my mom's wedding. They were given by my mom's cousin who was a sailor and he bought these from England.

So my mom gave each of her 4 daughters a set of of the teaset. So the teasets collection are older than me(am 49). I think they could easily be 60 to 70 years old or more. I have no idea.

It comes with a teapot, a sugar and milk pots and six tea cups and saucers and six dinner plates. I like the sugar pot best of all, can keep secrets there...lol (now no longer a secret...hehehe).
I love these so much.

Only show you two sets of the teacups and saucers there are four more.

I have no idea how much they are worth and I dont think I have the heart to sell them. I told my sons that these are antiques and they must not throw away as junk...lol.

If mom is still alive, she would be so proud to see her wedding gift in my blog. :) My mom is very proud and supportive in everything that I do.

I missed quite a few of your interesting posts. This one showcasing your beautiful tea set reminds me that I also have a a tea set from my mum and it was part of a large dinner set. A pity that only a few pieces remained of the dinner set. I have the tea pot, six teacups and saucers and sugar bowl too! I have almost forgotten about it or perhaps took it for granted as it sits silent in my glass cupboard in the kitchen. Thanks for reminding me of this precious gift from my mum. Cheers!

Hi Alice,

such a precious gift, you better not touch it in case you chip it. That's the advice I gave to my girl friend when she served us and a group of young mums with kids morning tea. Sure enough, one kid came and broke one of the saucers.

You are very lucky to inherit something like this from your mum. My mum was a war bride, had nothing.

Cheers,

Ann

p/s thanks for support for Kevin.

What a l♥vely Pink Saturday blog entry. This is the one day of the week when I get to sit for a couple of hours and soak in my favorite color. Thanks for being a part of that day☺

Wishing you and yours a wonderful family weekend. I will be remembering my father who served in WWII, and praying for all of our military who are in harms' way.

It is beautiful ...I have some tea cups that my grandmother had. They are beautiful, but they mean a lot to me as she used to let us drink our milk from them and play when we were children...
