Aunt Colleen's Tea Cups

I can't even begin to photograph all of
The interesting things at my
Great-Aunt Colleen's Home.
I have already shown some of the things that
really caught my eye. . .
Now I want to show you just a few
Of her Tea Cups
. . . . . . .
Of course, my favorite is the one that belonged to my
Great-Great Grandma Pickering. .
 This tea set is about 150 years old. . .
I really like this three footed tea cup and saucer
I told my Aunt this is the one I want. . LOL!

I didn't realize there was such a thing as a three footed cup.
Until I saw this one. . . . and later found out they are very collectible.
Now, I will be on the look-out for a three footed tea cup!

 Another favorite is this little dutch tea cup and tea pot.

 This are just a very small fraction of
what she has collected
Over the past 81 years!
 This little cup and saucer is very treasured by my Aunt.
My Uncle Frank (her husband) served in WWII and also the Korean War
During the Korean War he was stationed in Japan. . .
When he returned home, he gave her this little tea cup and saucer
That he had bought her while in Japan.
I thought this sugar bowl and creamer was unusual.
It has square handles, and a different shaped body.
Very interesting. . .
Well, my Auntie has a lot of treasures and collections.
I love visiting someone who values such
Beautiful things and have amassed a collection of treasures.
It just seems to make the person more interesting.
There is usually a story behind each treasure.
