Enjoy your relaxing beverage in this unique teacup by Royal Stuart Bone China of England. It was actually made by the Spencer Stevenson company which was owned by him and its director. They produced fine china from 1948 to 1960.
Of course, using the Seal of the State of New Hampshire made it unique. Please read on:
The first time lilacs are mentioned in New Hampshire history is in 1750 when Governor Wentworth enlarged his house and the plantings around it. Since the only plant that has ever been planted near the house was a lilac, we believe it was there in 1750. Lilacs were already known in the colonies but few records exist, apparently because the lilac came in as a personal family possession, not part of the agricultural inventory. Therefore, its appearance by the kitchen door was appreciated but never recorded. Although, whenever it came into the state the lilac took root, and, like the hardy settlers who brought it, became a permanent feature in this new world.
