Now let's move on to the first Teacup. I wrote about unpacking teacups in my last post over here.
I decided I was going to pack some of them back up and rotate them out for different decorating themes. My Granny was quite the traveler after my Pawpaw passed away. Some of the cups are my only way of knowing where she went.
This teacup and saucer are from Estes Park, Colorado. I didn't know she went there. In fact, I bought my first collectible teacup in Estes Park 10 years ago. Ha! What are the odds?
There's nothing else particularly special about the cup. No markings. I never thought about buying a teacup and saucer with the location as a souvenir.
You see the elevation? It's 7,547 feet...whenever the teacup was bought. If you look up the elevation now it will tell you it's 7,522 feet. So, Estes Park has sunk 25 feet.
One steal I got at another sale was a set, or most of a set, of Homer Laughlin china. The shape, not the pattern, is Village Rose. Trying to find the name of the pattern is not easy. I've only found mislabeled pictures that don't match up with Replacements.com. It is not Moss Rose or Fluffy Rose. This set was produced over several years from December 1960-1962. I considered it a good deal for $15 as I was looking for a nice set of dishes to use for dinner.
