"Queen's" tea cup

Here is a beautiful tea cup, with delicate golden floral sprays on the outside, and a pleasant surprise on the inside. 

White roses tinged with pink circle the inside of the cup, with an aqua blue just behind the roses for the sky. The nice thing about this tea cup, is that you can see the inside decoration whether you are right-handed or left-handed. A left-handed friend once pointed out to me that the tea cups were mostly decorated with a rose, etc. on the inside of the cup, only where right-handed people would see it.

I think this cup requires tea without milk, so you can see the pretty design. Perhaps an herbal tisane?

For those of you who like to turn the cup over, the label says "Queen's Find Bone China" and "Churchill Brand, Made in England."
