Teacup and Teapot Tuesday

Several years ago my dear sweet husband gave me this lovely blue and white Russian teapot.

He found it locally at an Antique/Gift shop. I fell in love with how delicately it is painted with little bits of gold trim.

When my dear daughter went on her second Missions trip to Russia, she brought these back for me.

The matching sugar and creamer, both with lids. They are both such fine pieces of china.

I love this tea service set. They have been presented to me by two special people that I love very much.

Please be sure to stop by the following blogs and enjoy what is shared today.

Have a wonder filled day!

Hello Joycely,
your tea set this is a real treasure. This is handpainted porcelin from the famous Russian manufacturer Lomonosov, St. Petersburg. The pattern is named "Basket". It is still in production, so you can complete if you want. But that looks also very nice with white or cobalt decor. Really pretty! Thank you for showing this wonderful set.
Greetings, Johanna
