Looking for a unique gift for Mom, your sister, or the woman in your life? Individual teacups and saucers are collected by many women who use them for display or to entertain their lady friends. Some women have inherited a collection of teacups and saucers from their mothers, aunts, or other family members. Whatever the case, teacups and saucers make a nice gift for any woman that collects them.
Looking for individual teacups and saucers is not as easy as it used to be. I find a lot of teacups and saucers at thrift stores instead of local department stores.
I have found several great websites that offer teacups and saucers at reasonable prices. I look for bone china sets that are made in England, Germany, Ireland, or Bavaria. The listing below are the best sites that I’ve found and have ordered from. To visit any website, just click on the name of the website.
The Tea Cup Gallery
A reliable website with lots of teacups and saucers to choose from. They also have children’s teacup sets, teapots, teas, tea mugs, and dish sets. You’ll find teacups and saucers for as low as $9.95. They currently have a set of 4 Rose Chintz mugs for just $29.95. The Tea Cup Gallery has Bearington Bears, Royal Albert, Windsor, Betty Platner, and Sheltonian brands just to name a few.
The Tea Cup Gallery also offers tea cup display racks, tea cup night lights, and miniature tea sets on this website. There’s a special category called “Fielder’s Keepsake Tea Sets” which are made in the U.S. Where you can purchase teacups and saucers that say “Grandmother”, “Mother”, “Daughter”, “Granddaughter”, or “Girlfriend” on them. These teacups and saucers would make a very unique gift set for someone.
Coffee Tea & Thee
This website has many beautiful bone china and porcelain teacups and saucers from England. The teacup and saucer sets run anywhere from $15.95 and up. There’s a good selection on this website and they also have tea mugs from $10.95 and up. Tea sets for children can also be found here.
Coffee Tea & Thee also sell their own teas and tea accessories. You can get Queen Elizabeth Tea or English Evening Tea to go along with your teacup and saucer.
Roses and Teacups
This is another website that has lots of different name brand teacups and saucers for under $20. You can find vintage rose patterns, flowers with butterflies, and flowers by themselves. This website is geared more for weddings, but they have lots of individual teacups and saucers that you can order. Roses and Teacups also offers chocolate gifts and little girl’s tea party sets. They have a very cute Alice In Wonderland tea set.
Lenox has some beautiful teacups and saucers for as low as $14.95 a set. A well-known name in the china industray, Lenox can also be very pricey. Besides individual teacups and saucers, you’ll find dish sets and place settings from the Lenox line. There are several holiday themed teacups and saucers as well.
What’s fun about this website is that you can search by price to see what’s available in your price range.
Lenox has some very modern looking teacups and saucers as well as the traditional china sets. Flowers, birds, and butterflies are some of the designs offered by Lenox. To visit their website, just click on Lenox.
Royal Doulton has been around for many years and is a favorite among teacup collectors. Their Old Country Roses pattern has long been a favorite and if the lady in your life does not have this teacup and saucer, you might want to check out Royal Doulton’s website. You can get teacups and saucers for as low as $19.99 and they, of course, also have their dish sets available.
Royal Doulton also has the Waterford and Wedgeford lines. Both Waterford and Wedgewood are more formal and modern as well as a bit pricey. I did see some teacups and saucers for $20 a set.
