It is a tradition in my family to use assorted antique china teacups instead of a matched set...everyone picking out what cup to use is always part of the fun at family celebrations. I'm just starting out my collection and I'd love to have this cup!
ELEGANT set of four footed cups and saucers in famous Mikado pattern by Royal Crown Derby. These gorgeous teacups are perfect to accompany your afternoon macarons from Faubourg! A 1923 price list for D.R. Dingwall Limited of Winnipeg shows Mikado tea cup sets selling for $2.25 CAD. RCD's new Mikado design costs £88 for a single cup and saucer set ($115USD / $150CAD). In my opinion the vintage Mikado production, all made in England, was superior.
