Another "Official" Collection

If you read my post on April 19th, you'll remember that I shared the red transferware demitasse cup that fellow blogger, Nancy, of Two Cottages and Tea sent me. 

Last Saturday my girlfriend and I stopped at an antique mall in Livonia, MI where we both found treasures.

Not only did I purchase the six red water goblets that I blogged about yesterday, but I also found another red transferware demitasse cup.  It's made in England by Copeland, and I got it for $6.00!  It's marked Spode's Tower.

Yesterday, the red transferware demitasse cup that I got on E-bay also arrived in the mail.  

I now have three red transferware demitasse cups, so it's an "official" collection!  Three down and five more to go! ;-)  They will be perfect for lemon curd, jam or clotted cream when I use my red transferware dishes at tea time!


  1. Yes, it's an official collection now, and a lovely one at that! I saw one at a "trash & treasure" sale last week and was about to grab it but it was cracked. Almost bought it anyway for the saucer. Probably should have. Oh, well. I'll admire yours anyway!

  2. Your red transferware cups are beautiful! There is a special charm about red ware. I have one regular, red transferware teacup and saucer. Otherwise the rest of mine are blue. Because I have the blue, I am charmed by the red. That's how it works, right? I love your new collection!

  3. They keep reaching out to find you!

  4. They look so sweet together. Love all transfer ware .

  5. They are a beautiful beginning to a collection. Of course you know I adore red transferware. I just found the sweetest square dessert plate, which I am enjoying with my breakfast grapefruit and toast.

  6. How pretty! I love the size *and* your suggested uses!
