The little white and floral cup is Salisbury Fine Bone China (made in England) and is called "Bill Heather" - the flowers are sprigs of Heather.
The little blue one at the back is a thicker china in a lovely warm blue glaze with gold rim. It only has a gold stamp on the bottom that says Italy.
The little oriental set in the front has no stamp or markings but is a very fine, delicate porcelain. It has a rippled edge which would make it difficult to drink out of.
The remaining two are my favourites....
This one has been a favourite of mine since my Dad brought it back from his Mother's place when I was a teenager. It is a Fortune Telling cup, complete with interpretative book. I have never seen one of these anywhere in real life ,although I have occasionally found one or two on England's ebay with Australian regd numbers. Mine does not have Australian regd so it was probably sold in England and brought out here. I have never seen them sold as a cup and saucer set with booklet. :)
I think perhaps this cup came from a friend of my Grandmother's, as apparently, when my Dad was single and in the Air Force, based many miles away, my Grandmother always had tea with a friend who told her her fortune from the tea leaves. She always knew when Dad would be home on leave, and would have his favourite meal ready. It's a lovely story, and I was always assured it was perfectly true. :)
