One of the most fun, and easy to collect antique is fine china antique tea cup and saucer sets.

I have provided a selection of both antique Aynsley tea cups and vintage Aynsley tea cups on this page just to give you a starting place, but there are many more available on Ebay if you click through the links.
Aynsley tea cups and saucers are simply beautiful. They are delicate looking with a wide range of colors and styles that would please just about any tea cup collector, or even just a gift to give a person who loves tea or coffee.
Some of the Aynsley designs are outright stand out colorful, like the beautiful set pictured to the above left. This design makes it look like you can pick the flowers right off the cup and saucer. And this particular set also comes with a tea plate or dessert plate as a third piece to the set.

If you would prefer to spend a little less money, then look at vintage Aynsley tea cup and saucers instead of antiques. The vintage sets don’t usually have a matching tea plate, but the colors on all of cups and saucers are quite beautiful, and they are not quite as costly as the antiques.
Aynsley is quite unique, in both the colorations and the styling of the cup shapes, and handles, as well as the design. You can easily display these in your home on a shelf, or in a glass front cabinet. They are quite practical as you can use them for tea and snacks at any time. Truly fun to collect, and fun to give as a gift.
Tea time was such a ritual for the British, especially 100 years ago, although tea time is still important now. These cups reflect the British importance of tea time, with the distinct artwork on each cup and saucer.
