Royalty at Lady Estelle's Tea Salon

I am so excited about a little bit of Royalty added to my tea collection.
I have waited a long time for thees beautiful cups to arrive. They sat in  England's costume for a month.
I am very happy they arrived to the United States in one piece.

Exclusive to the Royal Collection, the exquisite pattern of this English Fine Bone China tea cup and saucer is taken from a dessert stand which formed part of a Minton service purchased by Queen Victoria at The Great Exhibition in 1851. Each piece is finished by hand using 22 carat gold.Comes in Royal Collection box stamped with Made in England.
 My favorite! The Queen Victoria Tea Cup & Saucer
Width 14cm (5½) Height 6cm (3”)

This item has been hand gilded using 22 carat gold, and comes tissue wrapped in a presentation box with an information card. I love the V in the pattern of the saucer.

You can truly say that this collection brings a little bit of Class and Royalty to the Salon.
On Sunday, April 10 the Salon will be open for Afternoon Spring Tea. It will start at 2pm until 6pm.
Please RSVP for a SITTING. 1-401-935-5759.


    (Worth the wait) ;-)
    Warm Blessings, Linnie

  2. I love the Royal Collection teacups. I had the dark one in my shop and sold it in November to a man in Australia to give to his teacup and royalty collecting wife. They are great to have!
    Thanks for sharing!
