Teacup Thursday: "Johnson Brother Mystery"

Mom and I love Johnson Brothers China... when we're in antique stores we naturally gravitate towards china that's made by Johnson Bros without even knowing 'who' made the china. Well, with this teacup, it was no different. The only problem was that this pretty little cup didn't have a saucer or a pattern name on the bottom of the teacup.  We later found ths saucer, "Dorchester by Johnson Bros."  that compliments this teacup but it is not its "soulmate".  So we have a question for you: "Does anyone recognize this pattern???"

Other's Who Are Participating in
Teacup Thursday!


  1. Oh my, what a pretty set! I too love Johnson Bros. china and I collect the Rose Chintz pattern. I do not know the name of this pattern but I love it! I would love to participate in your tea party if I may. I will add your link to my own. Thank you and have a lovely day.


  2. I love Johnson Bros., too. Wow, that looks as if it could be the same pattern!

    I recently purchased a pretty Bavarian china pattern at Goodwill (plates, saucers, and teacups... only missing the salad plates).

    When I researched it, I noticed there were two patterns very similar and with the same name. I found out that the dishes I bought were vintage and made from the 30s through the 60s while the similar dishes were the same pattern after the 60s.

    I don't think I've ever seen that before.

  3. I don't know the pattern, but I love it all anyway even if it does match. I think I have seen the cup before, but not the rest. Very pretty.

  4. Good morning!!!
    I love Johnson Brothers china also. I collect Friendly Village, His Majesty (turkey) and Old English Pink Rose (may be known as Miniver). I think your cup is Old English Chintz!!! Do a search on Ebay for Old English Chintz and see.
    I hope you have an exquisite day!!
    Warm hugs, Laura

  5. Lovely china but I do not know the pattern name. Have you tried Replacements.com?

  6. Many times you can take a photo and submit it to Replacements...I did that with my Grandmother's China when I inherited it. They helped me to "identify" the pattern pretty quickly.

  7. It looks like either Victorian Chintz or Old English Chintz, being very similar to each other.
