We went for a visit to Dagfields, a huge Antique centre near Nantwich in Cheshire today. I think actual Antiques were in rather short supply, but plenty of collectibles. We came home with this pretty tea cup, 2 Midwinter Stonehenge plates, and some Harry Potter Lego!!
This tea cup is made by Alfred Meakin and is marked as hand engraved under glaze, whatever that means! I bought it because it has a picture of Ashness Bridge, which is near Keswick in the Lake District, which is where I went to school. We went there a few years ago, and the trees around it have grown up a lot obscuring the view of Derwentwater. I think this cup and saucer is from the 1950's - 60's.
