Magpie Monday... Stepping back in time.

I love bargain and I  do enjoy charity shops so o the rare occasions I do go to town and I am without my child ( and husband) free. I just mooch just , glide around looking at the charity shops . Well last Friday this item caught my eye .

1911 Royal Doulton Coronation cup and saucer.


1911  it so upstairs downstairs  I can just see it sitting in some Ladies parlour, I find it hard to believe this is over a 100 years old. It has a slight hairline crack in the cup but after one hundred years wouldn't you have the odd blemish or too ?



The price just 99p that's  a bargain in my opinion here' hoping it survives another hundred years.

  2. Pretty cup. I hope you have it on display. What a shame about the crack.

  3. This is gorgeous, my father-in-law would be very jealous, he's got quite a collection of commemorative cups, but very few dating back that far.
