Hi – I’ve been looking for years for additional coffee cups for my set of Red Wing Magnolia. I have many tea cups, but only a few of the coffee size. Are they very rare? Or do I not have the right name for them? Any help would be GREATLY appreciated!
Red Wing literature calls the shallow cups “tea cups” and the deep sided cups “coffee cups”. The Magnolia pattern is one of many produced in the Concord shape. Concord was introduced in 1941 with the Lexington and Harvest patterns, and tea cups were among the items available from the beginning. Over the years new patterns and new pieces were added to the Concord line. Magnolia was introduced in the late 1940s and was made until 1956. But the coffee cup was not added to the Concord line until 1954, long after the introduction of Magnolia. So while the Magnolia pattern was made for nearly 10 years, Magnolia coffee cups were available for only two of those years. Thus they are considerably more difficult to find than tea cups. Magnolia coffee cups aren’t really rare, but they certainly qualify as scarce. Good luck in your search!
