I Found My Samantha Cup On The Net!
I had so much fun searching the Net for this cup last night! There's no name stamped on the bottom so the hunt was on! She comes from the Taylor Smith Taylor line called "Ever Yours Boutonniere" I found them being sold on several sites for a whole lot more than the 25 cents I paid at the GW! ☺ One person said they remembered their mother getting them out of boxes of Quaker Oats! If my sources are correct, my hunch concerning her age was right. One site said that these were discontinued in 1962. Here's the link to one such site if you're interested.
Since I'm not decorating, crafting or treasure hunting in the midst of this big move coming up, it was really fun for me to go "treasure hunting" in *this* way! I was so excited when I finally found the cup and its *real* name! But of course, she'll always be Samantha to me.
Have a great day everyone!
