Teacup Thursday — July 1981 Royal Wedding

This is a Christmas gift from Mary. 
She found this commemorative cup and saucer/dish in an antique shop when she was visiting a friend in Florida
I wanted to share it today with Miss Spenser's Teacup Thursday.
The hoopla surrounding William and Kate's April wedding is becoming exciting.
Did you receive your official wedding invitation this week?
My invitation hasn't arrived, yet. 
I plan to watch the festivities on TV in the wee hours of the morning on April 29th. 




You may need to double click on the photos above to see all the details. 
According to the markings on the bottom of the cup and dish, this is Elizabethan Fine Bone China made in England
commemorating the July 29, 1981 marriage of H.R.H. The Prince of Wales and Lady Diana Spencer.
I watched that special event on TV, did you?

Thank you Mary for this special gift!
