Vintage Thingie Thursday

This little cup and saucer were my Grandmother's. I think it is Flow Blue?


It is so tiny

It has always sat on the same little cup holder

It is a hard plastic

pretty scroll work on the sides

I know it has to be old

It was made in the USA!

It has a place of honor on my Grandmother's corner cabinet.
The corner cabinet sat in my Grandmother's living room, then my Mom's and now my dining room. And the tea cup and stand have always been on the same shelf.

thanks for stopping by to visit!

Have a great VTT

Ann, That is so sweet...and to think it has passed now to the third generation and always been in the same spot. What a wonderful connection to your past- xo Diana

I have never seen a plate and cup hold like that. Oh the way they used to make things. So detailed and well made. Beautiful cup with such good memories.

You're so lucky to be the proud owner of your grandmother's treasures. I have my grandmother's dresser set from the 1920s and a little porcelain clock that sits on top of the dresser. This is exactly the same spot where she always kept it.
Thanks so much for visiting and for sharing.

Oh Ann, That is so pretty. I do think you are right and it is flow blue..I also love the corner cupboard. Brings back memories of my Grandmothers home. She had one too! Have a great day,

LV said...

Cannot vouch for the cup and saucer but the corner shelf is definitely vintage. I have my grandmothers and she lived to be 98. So you know how old it is.

Oh Ann, I love this, what a gorgeous cup and saucer. And I love the thought of the corner cabinet being passed down and so beloved by all of you.

Do you read Corey Amaro's blog, "Tongue in Cheek"? One of her friends collects "Flow Blue", I had never heard of it before I read about it on her blog.

Happy VTT!

What a lovely cup. I have cups that my step grandmother gave me when I just a little girl and I have treasured them all these years. What sweet memories our little cups bring. Have a good weekend.
