  1. Crazy overload of handle information! Extremely interesting though- who knew tea cups had soooo much information hidden in them. :) I don't know if I will retain more than two or three types, but I know where I'm coming when I want to find out what I have!

  2. Would love to know over what range of years each of these styles was manufactured.

  3. Do you know where I can find mugs or tea cups with the loop double rest style handle? I was once served tea in a cafe where the handle had that 2nd finger rest. I'd love to find some cups like that to buy, but can't seem to find them anywhere. Any thoughts or recommendations?
