The flower of the month for July is the Water Lily, depicted here on a sweet Teacup and Saucer. This pretty teacup and saucer set for the month of July is decorated with decals of large, deep pink and white water lilies on deep green lily pads. On a grayish-white ground, the front of the cup and the top of the saucer have a trio of lilies, while the back of the cup and lower half of the saucer each have a single pink water lily. This set has an unusual fluted and paneled shape, like the spokes of a wheel, with alternate panels slightly longer on the saucer and indented on the teacup. The cup has a fancy loop handle. The rims of both pieces, as well as the cup ring of the saucer, and the foot and handle of the cup are all trimmed in gold.
The footed cup is 2-3/4 inches tall, and 3-1/2 inches in diameter at the fluted rim, with a 1-3/4 inch diameter scalloped foot. The matching saucer is 5-3/4 inches in diameter.
It is stamped simply "July Water Lily" in black letters.
There is wear on the gold of the thumb rest. There are several pinpoint dark spots on the thin gold line around the rim, and another on the saucer. There are no other condition issues.
This vintage teacup will make a lovely gift for a July birthday. Pair it with your favorite tea and a book for a thoughtful gift basket!
