A Vintage Royal Standard Teacup Trio

 
The readers of my blog know I collect vintage English teacup trio sets.
A trio includes a teacup and saucer and "side plate."
This pretty bone china set is Orleans Rose by Royal Standard. 
 
I am drinking Organic Bai Mu Dan (Silver Peony) from Red Blossom Tea Company,
a family owned tea shop in the heart of San Francisco's Chinatown. 
We visited this tea shop several years ago.  I order fine teas from their website www.redblossomtea.com

I saw 2 Orleans Rose yesterday while up in Denver antiquing. One had some of the gold missing and the other was way too much $$$. I do have one myself and it is a beautiful pattern indeed. Glad you found this beloved trio.

Another lovely addition to your trio collection. By now you could probably write a collector's book on trios.

Linda, your Orleans Rose is gorgeous! I have the teacup but not the saucer. Would love to find one. It is such a sweet pattern. How lovely you have the trio. I like to find trios too but here on the Island, it is difficult. Thank you for sharing yours and for joining me for tea.

Blessings,
Sandi

Another pretty pattern with roses. I always admire the trio sets shared from bloggers over tea.

I of course LOVE this trio since it so prominently features those large roses I love! China roses will have to do me until it's warm enough for the live ones to start blooming again!

A beautiful trio and the tea sounds just perfect to sip from that cup.
