My mother has a tea cup and it has golden plant on it. I want to know the name of the plant.
tha cup is a memorial cup of Queen Elizabeth Coronation, so the plant might have something to do with royal family.

Welcome Rosy ROSE. :)

The plant could be a depiction of oak leaves and acorns. It is a symbol that English/British monarchs and nobility have used down through the centuries. The symbol represents strength, stability and/or nobility.

The Queen's coronation was in June @Tetters . I can't see them using holly and mistletoe at that time of year, although the leaves do look similar to holly.

Rosy ROSE, are there any markings or the company that produced the cup on the bottom please? We may be able to locate it and gather more information.

Edit: It could also be Rosa Canina, common name Dog rose.

Yep, I know it was June - the 2nd I think, same day as my first son was born (not 1953 though - I`m not THAT old) but do we actually know for sure that it was a commemorative cup for the coronation?? Most of those would have looked more like this
