Vintage Thingies Thursday




This is cup day on Coloradolady and her Vintage Thingies Thursday.





This a very pretty set made by the Johnson Brothers. All of these sets are from various family estates.
Neither of these cups or saucers have markings. Just thought they were neat and kept. I am not sure what the initials stand for on the last cup. Perhaps some lodge or union group.

Very pretty. My mom used to collect tea cups but I don't know where they are now. There are so many very interesting ones and beautiful ones.

LV,

The first set reminds me of something I had seen at my moms like Currier and Ives that has been mentioned before. Oh how I love that pattern of dishes. Simply beautiful.
