Teacup Thursday — J & C Bavaria

During March I will feature my green colored teacups. I only have a few green teacups.  Most of my teacups are pinks and pink floral patterns. 
 This teacup is a Jeager and Co. Bavaria, Germany hand painted antique porcelain teacup
and saucer marked "Louise."  It is in various shades of green accented with pink flowers and gold trim.

This teacup was part of Aunt Ida's collection.  She purchased pretty teacups during her travels and out "antiquing" with lady friends around central Kentucky. I don't use this teacup. I display it in my dining room with glassware and china gifts from Aunt Ida.  She started me on my teacup collecting journey in 1985.  I have always been a tea drinker rather than a coffee drinker, but I didn't develop my passion for "all things tea" until 1993.  It has been a fun journey of collecting and continued tea education.
