At each retreat a High Tea is held in place of Saturdays' lunch. These tea cups are a part of it and they are ours to keep. I have four of them and cherish them like very few of the other things I have! There are many fond memories behind these cups which I wouldn't trade for the world!
The cups and saucers' that I have are the "bigger" version of what Vision Forum sells Here. The bottom of my saucer says that it was made by "Reutter Porzellan of Germany". It's not a thick china and yet it isn't thin. I love how it feels and balances in my hands.
I was going to post several pictures of my tea cups in action, but I can't find them and am "afeard" that they are lost. I'd better go do some sleuthing in hopes that they turn up.
