Bargain Shelley Teacup

 I had to make an unexpected trip to Lexington Monday morning.  
After my errand was completed, I stopped by a consignment shop
where I have purchased a wide variety of items over the past several years. 
They rarely have English teacups for sale. I think I found one a few years ago. 
I was surprised to see this Shelley English Bone China Blue Rock Cup and saucer
on a shelf among a variety of cups and saucers, none of which were appealing to me. 
 I was very curious as to what the price might be. 
$5.00 
I have two others I paid a lot more than $5.00 for. 
I snatched this bargain up, paid, and quickly headed home! 
What fun!

Linda, what a find! I love that pattern and the shape of the cup. Isn't tea and all things related to it wonderful! (I have a couple of teatime giveaways coming up on my blog, just so you know!)
