A Vintage Grosvenor Teacup and Saucer


I found this pretty Grosvenor Bone China teacup and saucer while antique shopping in Canton, Ohio.  It is made in England and marked Jackson and Gosling Ltd.  I'm not sure what the pattern is called.  Are the flowers Bluebells?    The price was $10.  I thought it made a nice addition to my teacup collection.

Oh, that is very pretty. And $10 is a very great deal. A big thumbs-up to you for being such a savvy shopper.

Linda, what fun to find your blog! I just browsed through your posts (love the one about Aunt Ida's house and I'm so glad your friend is calling it home:)
You've had so many wonderful travels and I love seeing all of your beautiful tea cups and tea pots. I look forward to coming back soon and often!

Came by your blog from Latane's.
Just wanted to add that here in England and Wales these pretty dainty flowers would be wild harebells (Campanula family bellflower) not our native bluebell which are bulbs of woodlands.
Still they are called 'blubells' in Scotland with a song in their honour!
