For Richer, For Poorer, In Sickness, In Health, For Better, For Worse...are the words bordering this very special Anniversary teacup by Paragon China. Each phrase is separated by a heart that is pierced by Cupid's arrow. The theme is continued with two pastel lovebirds with hearts and flowers as well.
Paragon Fine Bone China of England crafted this romantic tea cup and saucer. The inside of the cup says Happy Anniversary. It wears the backstamp from 1963.
The interesting part is the list that decorates the cup. It states the number of years married and which item is symbolically designated to it. For example, year fifteen is the crystal anniversary.
Paragon was given a royal warrant by the Queen of England for their quality of craftsmanship and their service to the royal family.
The price also includes free US shipping, free gift wrapping and free insurance.
Measurements: The saucer is 5.5" in diameter. The cup is 2.6" high and 3.5" from rim to rim.
Paragon is considered one of the finest of the English bone china producers. If you'd like to learn more, please see:
