Last week I got a new wire tea set displayer which is interesting and I am sure it could be used different ways.

Although I may live to regret this, I did not keep the above basket!

I have been so disappointed that a number of companies have quit producing cup and saucer displayers - especially the tabletop ones.
Many of the wall types have been discontinuted as well!

Have you ever regretted not buying something in an antique mall or at a yard sale.  You go back, and it is gone.....right now if you see a holder for cups and saucers - you better buy it!

I have shared my love for mixing and matching tea china items:

I will be linking this post to A Delightsome Life and also Tea Time Tuesday with Sandi !

Hi Bernideen,
this wire display is beautiful. And so usefull for bringing the china outside to the porch or garden table. And also in the kitchen to display it. We don't have any nice form of display here. Thank you for sharing.
Best greetings, Johanna

I love that. It's so pretty and displays your favorites nicely. The tea-pot inside is so sweet. Hugs, Deb=^..^=x4

I will be keeping a eye out for these!

What a beautiful new display piece you have--love it! And you know, I thought about getting rid of an old cup-and-saucer display shelf recently but decided instead to just move it to the craft room. So thanks for the advice!

Hi Bernideen
I like the teacup displaying rack you found and I will keep an eye out at the antique markets for one.

What a great teacup rack! I haven't seen one like that before. As usual, love your wonderful tea items and lovely photos! Thanks so much!

Bernideen, I like mismatched china too. There is something oh so charming about it.
The tea set holder is just lovely! I have one too but a smaller size which came with a set of china.
I wonder why they are not producing nice tea things so much any more. Could it be that the younger generation isn't interested in tea parties? They are really missing out!
Thanks for joining me for tea today. Your post is lovely!

Love your tea displayer and also the three tiered crystal server, Bernideen. Also wanted to let you know that upon your recommendation, Agony of the leaves is sitting on my couchside table!
Blessings, Beth

What a beautiful way to display tea cups. So sorry that they will become extinct. I will be on the look out.

Your new wire tea display piece is just wonderful. I have seen some teacup display pieces and now I guess I better go find one to have on hand. I have been wanting to host a spring tea and thought the wire displays would be pretty for the buffet table. Your teacups and teapot are so pretty. Thanks for the tip about the display pieces being discontinued. Now we will all be out shopping for them! :) Happy St. Patrick's Day!

I never knew there was such a thing as a tea caddy. How wonderful! It would make setting up a tea table in a small place like our current library easier and attractive. I will have to keep my eye out for one of these.

Rosemary said...

Very interesting display rack! Haven't seen one like that. And I agree, it is unfortunate that they no longer make the type that hangs on the wall or holds four cups to display on a table.

Donna and Miss Spenser said... the display rack...would look perfect on our Bed and Breakfast counters!!

What a lovely display of your china. I have a wire tea set holder that my sister-in-law gave me that came with a matching tea set. I'll definitely snap up any that I come across from now on.

I'm thrilled to be the winner of the signed Tea Shop Mystery book!

Hello Bernideen! this is fantastic! I love it! I'll have to take your advice to heart - I love wire displays and will look for them! Thank you for sharing with Home and Garden Thursday,
