Show and Tell - Tea Cup Holder


Time for Kelli's Show and Tell, go to Kelli's for more interesting things.

I found this unusual cup and saucer holder at the antique store yesterday. I've never seen one like it before. It has a rose on it and I just had to buy it! I don't think it is an antique, they had two and my friend bought the other one.

Here it is with a cup and saucer on it. Becca, do you recognize the tea cup and saucer? It's a favorite in my yellow rose tea cup collection!

I hope you enjoyed seeing my show and tell!

Hello Katherine, I love it! I have never seen anything like that before! I think if I saw it in a antique store, I would not have known what it was!
Thanks for sharing!

What a lovely holder and beautiful way to displace a treasured china cup and saucer.

Hi Katherine,

That is just adorable. I wish I had one. I'll have to keep my eye out for one when I'm out shopping.
Have a good weekend.

Looking at the first picture, I couldn't tell how it was to be used. LOL, I thought it went on a wall. I'm so glad you included a picture with a cup and saucer on it so I could see how it is actually used.

Now that's just gorgeous! I've never seen one like that, but it's perfect for displaying the saucer. Very pretty!

Thanks for visiting my blog and leaving your sweet comment. Yes, Cow Parade has been in many cities around the world. The one in Chicago was the first one in the USA. My collection is made by Westland. I have 195 cow parade figurines now, so I feature one on the blog as often as I can. You know, those cows have to earn their keep around here. Take care.

This is so pretty!! I'd love to know more about it. And your cup and saucer look so "at home" right there! :)

Enjoy it!

P.s I think the paper on my picture is hand cut.

What a unique cup and saucer holder. Cups and saucers are one of my weaknesses! You commented on the mercury glass pumpkin. I purchased mine at TJMaxx. It seems I can always find a treasure or two there!

Adrienne said...

Your cup and saucer are gorgeous in your new find. I've never seen one like that before. Thanks for sharing it with us. Now I'll keep my eyes open incase I see one. I'll know what it is. ~Adrienne~

I love your cup and saucer display holder. I have one that's similar and I like how it doesn't take up lots of space. I also enjoy that the teacup doesn't have to 'hang' to be displayed.

Your pumpkin decor is lovely as well!
