Tea Cup Tuesday

My sweet daughter gave me a set of FireKing cups and saucers for Christmas last year. She found them on ebay, and they are in perfect condition. I had never seen this pattern before, so it was a very delightful addition to my cups and saucer collection.

A few months ago we were browsing in an antique shop and I spied this sugar and creamer set. It's so fun to be able to add serving pieces to the 6 cups and saucers that I already have.

Please join me for some tea party fun with

Wishing you a tea-lightful day.

This is a beautiful set... Your daughter and you both have wonderful taste. I have never seen that pattern either, it is SO different, I LOVE it... and I like that the creamer and sugar match BUT are a different pattern, That makes it so much FUN!
Have a great week,

Those are so pretty! How fun to find the sugar/creamer. Did they make a teapot in this pattern?

The joy of collecting is always enhanced when you come across something so unexpectedly.
I've not come across FireKing ware before but I can see why it appeals to you.

The snappy gold shades will go well with a red and gold Christmas tree if you have one...pretty.

Hi Joceyln: I love this set. Fire King is hard to find. What a great treasure you have. I do not own any Fire King, it seems it is always so expensive. I am still hoping one day to find some. Thank you for sharing these beauties. Have a wonderful week. Blessings, Martha

I love your Fire King tea cup and saucer! How fab that you received it as a gift from your daughter. The other pieces are lovely as well, how lucky you were to find more matching pieces.
