Good old Hotels 5

Posted by
Devi (Chennai, India) on 16 June 2017 in Miscellaneous and Portfolio.

These cups and saucers with golden rims are still around in plenty...but slowly mugs are replacing them. I feel that these are very elegant

Ahhh nostalgia!
I have just found many gold-rimmed tea cups like this when clearing out my mother's home. Sad, but true, the 'Afternoon tea' tradition is waning, but will hopefully see a rebirth.

@: Helen :: Yes the " afternoon tea tradition " is vanishing slowly..and such cups are also being replaced with mugs!

This cup, has certainly, had some serious afternoon tea Devi. Another great find in this series. Have a great weekend, and a nice cup of tea.

These are well worn but still quite elegant. Mugs would be much lees so.

I am surprised to see the gold trim still intact!! The coffee has done a good job of highlighting the hairline cracks. :-)
