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.

Tea Cup Thursday




I am sharing Tea Cup Thursday with Miss Spencer.


Happy St. Patty's Day to all my Tea Loving Friends. This is a day of eating, drinking and being merry. I hope this day was just that. I also want to wish all a pot of gold for the coming year.













A Royal Halsey-Very Fine

This is a lovely pink cup I purchased from the Historic Hearthside House Gift Shop. I have had my eye on this cup for quit awhile now.



 "Royal Halsey" very fine china cup and saucer. The cup is scalloped in design. The inside is plain and looks like Mother of Pearl with a beautiful floral design. The outside is pink and trimmed in gold with a gold handle   The saucer is also scalloped with gold trim and a floral design








This is very dainty and very fitting for a "quiet afternoon tea"!
