Vintage Cups

I used to enjoy afternoon tea with friends. But since the lockdown, sadly one of my favorite teashops TWG had closed off their dining area so I’ve not had a chance to have a proper afternoon tea. I’m still on the lookout for good scones and clotted cream. When I find them maybe I can have virtual tea sessions someday soon.

Recently I realized that next to the intimate conversations during afternoon tea, the reason I loved it so much was the fancy teacups. Amazing how social media suggests pages that pique one’s interest. I stumbled upon multiple Instagram accounts about vintage teacups and I’ve been fascinated and started collecting them since early this month. My first sets were made in Bavaria and Czekoslovakia, and then I found pieces from Japan and England. Once I get to travel this is definitely something I look forward to searching for and bringing back home.

My teacup haul

  1. I love your tea cups. I had collected them for a while many years ago, but too many moves made me decide to gift them to my children. I love tea, and more than that, I love the social aspects, which have been undeniably impacted by all the restrictions around covid – necessary restrictions that I hope will be lifted in the not too distant future.


    1. Thank you Carol, I can’t seem to get enough of them for now and I’m sure I will also gift-give them soon as I have limited shelf space. For now I can only use them on e-meets, or by my lonesome. Nothing beats face to face interactions, but I agree the restrictions are quite necessary. I pray our for our world to fully heal soon.

  2. Lovely collection! My mother collected teacups and saucers and would serve with them when her women friends came over. I have them now but seldom use them. I’m feeling inspired by youe post to use one today – an Irish set with red roses.
