Hetty's tea cup...



Shout out to fellow NCIS: Los Angeles watcher Andi and her family for sending us this picture of great-grandma's tea cups which happen to be the same as Hetty uses them... :-)

how can you find one similar to the one hetty uses?

It's Royal Albert Old Country Roses. Any major department store like Macy's or Dillard's has it. Also check out Ebay.com and Replacements.com, among others. There are many, many variations on this classic pattern, so be careful and compare the pictures if you want the same thing as Hetty. FWIW, as bone china goes the prices are quite reasonable.

I just purchased mine for Mother's Day! I love Heddy! And tea. It was a fun, bitter ebay fight with my husband and son telling me to carry on bidding until I won. :)

I thought this tea cup looked familar. I looked in the back of my cupboard and found boxed up three cups and saucers that I inherited when my Grandmother passed away. I think the set was split between my siblings and myself.

Hetty uses a different cup and saucer on the show aired May 28, 2013. Can anyone identify this set? I was brought up in the chinaware business. Old Country Roses is very popular and has been for decades.
