A Star Is Born


Thank you to all who wrote and commented on the teacup in my Lenox Almond Biscotti post! This is one of my favorite teacups. I don't have a huge collection, but I have some cherished cups that I inherited from family members, and this is one of them.

This teacup, my little show-stealer, once belonged to my husband's paternal grandmother. According to my mother-in-law, the cup was around when she started dating my father-in-law, so that means it's at least fifty years old. Sorry, that's pretty much all the background info I have on it!



If you know something about china (I don't), the marks on the bottom of the cup might tell you something about the manufacturer and pattern. If they do, please drop me a comment or an e-mail and let me in on the mystery.



Thanks again for your interest!

  3. ~Lisa: Wow ~ thanks so much for digging up this info! I had no idea what the "RW" logo meant. As far as I was concerned, "Bavaria" WAS the brand name! Thanks again!
