This is my Japanese china tea cup and saucer. I have a pair of them. About 15 years ago, I was at an auction and the auctioneer says, "Sandi, I can't even get a dollar for this box of stuff, you'll give me a dollar won't you?" Of course I said yes. In it with a lot of junk there were 5 cups and saucers. I took three of the 5 to a flower shop here in town, and had a dried arrangement put in them for my 3 good friends, and gave them to them for Mother's Day one year. I no longer keep in close touch with these girls and have wondered several times if they knew what they had. I've been told since then, that these are pre-war Japanese china, and are probably worth quite a bit if I had the right buyer. Ha! I still have the two left, and keep them displayed on top of one of my china cupboards. They are very delicate, thin, and painted with gold trim. There is so much detail. Please click on the photo to enlarge it and see what I mean.
I took last week off, seemed to have a writers block, but kept watching the folks I'm following. So, I'm back this week, I've been taking photos all weekend, hope I have enough to get me through the week. Be sure and check in at the Mosaic Monday host and also Blue Monday, found at the following addresses:
I hope you all have a safe, wonderful week.
