Tea Cups and Saucers are a perfect match to the teapots we offer. Originally Tea Cups did not have handles. It wasn't until Afternoon Tea and High Tea became popular with the aristocracy that handles were actually added to tea cups. The added handles prevented ladies from burning their fingers when 'taking tea'. We especially love our "Cup of the Month" line because they are perfect for gift giving. January thru December porcelain teacups are featured on this page.
