Teacup Thursday — A Vintage Teacup (Germany)

This is another pretty teacup Aunt Ida gave me in the mid-1980s. 
I have not been able to research the mark, but it appears to be very old with "Germany" and "Carmen" on the bottom.
It is hand painted.  Can you see the raised painted white border on the flower in front.
Do you have thoughts or information on this teacup?
Ruth, of Antiques and Teacups, you have been a great source of information. 
Do you know anything about this one? 

Unfortunately, during my very late night teacups searches,
 my computer has been infected by viruses and has been sent to the shop twice in the last two weeks.
I've been told I need to replace my new computer with a newer computer!  
Maybe I should just curtail my middle-of-the-night teacup research!

Hi Linda!

Beautiful!!! Love the bright green!!

I can relate to the frustration over computer viruses. We had one a few months ago...and it left us without a computer for about six days as we worked to repair it. How totally disgusting that there are people who so like to hurt others that they think up those horrible viruses.

Have a great day,

What a pretty teacup and an interesting shape, too. I think those vintage German pieces are some of the loveliest ones.

Really really is an unusual much more striking than the usual pale pastels. Perfect for an Irish month! Thanks for visiting were up earlier than we are here on the West coast!

Very pretty, I love the flowers. Generally, things made after 1890 and imported here had to give the country of origin. Before then, they did not have to be marked. Carmen is probably the name of the pattern

So pretty! Love that shade of green! What a great collector your aunt was!

Hi Linda
I'm catching up on posts after returning from vacation.
This teapcup has an interesting shape, how nice to have something different.
Computer viruses are scary things, we bought a special anti-virus program after one wiped out one of our computers years ago.
