Teacup Thursday

I love the colors of these simple cups.
They always cause me to smile when I see them stacked just so on my shelf.
What's extra special about them is that they were made probably about the 1950's
in California.  We find so many teacups made in England, China, or Japan;
but how often do we see cups made in California or the USA.
Under the saucer it says: Early California, Authentic Vernonware, Made in USA.

This holiday season of gift buying coming up, my thoughts are going
more and more to shopping local.
So this morning it is fun to be sipping from a teacup made in California, USA.

Do any of my tea drinking friends have teacups made in the USA?
