A Vintage Trentham Violet Trio

 
This week I am sharing photos of a vintage Violet Teacup and Saucer Trio
made by Trentham Bone China, Ltd. at their Royal Crown Pottery
in Longton, Staffordshire in the 1950's.
 
These are decorated with purple violets with green foliage and
trimmed in gold.  The plate is 8 inches, which is my favorite size for afternoon tea.  
 

Floral teacups are my favorite.
I have many patterns with roses, and have recently been adding
more violets to my collection.  
 
I especially like the floral design inside the cup. 
What designs and colors do you look for when collecting teacups?

Most of my teacups have roses, although I do have violets and a few other flowers as well. To buy a new one I have to like the colour combination first and then the shape. I really don't need any more though.
Your violet trio is pretty, do you use it often?

I think my quest for certain colors is seasonal. I'm still on my aqua/turquoise kick so I find myself drawn to those, but at Valentine's I want pink, in March I want green and shamrocks, along about April I want jonquils and pansies and violets ... so I pretty much want every kind of teacup out there at some point in the year, ha!

Love the violets. It always reminds me of my violet china.
My favorite these days are transferware that tell a story.

Very pretty, Linda. I have a couple of violet teacups as well. They feel springy!

How pretty! I love china with violets on it, but that's probably because I love violets.
