Some Treasures

Posted by

I have a collection of china tea sets consisting of a luncheon plate, teacup and saucer. Each set is different, no 2 are alike, although they are all probably best described as "country cottage floral". I also have a collection of assorted demitasse cups. I have only 2 pairs of demitasse cups that match, all the others are different. Most belonged to my mom, my paternal grandma, or my maternal grandma. I love these little sets, and this little demitasse cup and saucer is one of my favorites. It is more formal than the others and the only one in black. The little pewter pot is is one of 2 pewter pots I have, also inherited. This one is really tiny, only big enough for one cup. I have never actually used either of these treasures but I do really like them.

This was shot on a piece of black glass hence the pure black and slight reflection of the pot.
