A Vintage Teacup
My teaware tastes have always been mostly Asian inspired and traditional but lately I seem to have developed a fetish for vintage teacups. Mint green has also become my thing. When I spotted this one on Etsy, it was love at first sight. The opulent gold trimming and delicate floral details combined with it being one of my favorite colors was too much to resist. I haven't been able to find out the name of the pattern but I do know that it was produced by Paragon in the 1930's. I can't help but feel fancy when drinking from it. By the way, I purchased it from Swirling Orange on Etsy. The seller was incredibly professional, packed it well and follow up with me every step of the way.
