Vintage Royal Worcester Teacup Trio


I purchased this Royal Worcester teacup and saucer trio
in  the Mansfield-Blue pattern at the huge Antique Tobacco Barn in Asheville, NC
earlier this month. 
I saw the "made in England" and grabbed the cup and saucer. 
My friend Lynn kept insisting there were plates under a stack of matching bowls. 
We went back and she was right!
Wow!  Another trio to add to my collection!
I was thrilled because we have been to Worcester several times and purchased Worcester at the factory.  The price was fantastic compared to online prices. 
Hmmm..... I'm wondering if the savings is worth the cost of another trip to purchase
the other matching trio I didn't purchase that day.   
Anyone want to travel along?

What a fun day that was, and so happy for your discovery and purchase! If it wasn't so far from Michigan to Kentucky, I'd go back to Asheville with you in a heartbeat! ;-)
