I’m going to be quick because I decided that a little lunchtime trip to the library would do me some good. So today, I present my little demitasse cup collection.
The bright blue set is from a housewares store in Freiburg, Germany. Germans make nice dishes.
The dark blue + gold set is Russian, picked up at a bazaar in the north of Azerbaijan.
I love small cups, but they happen to be wildly impractical. I have had coffee in a demitasse cup maybe three times in my whole life, but they are so hard NOT to buy when you find them.
If you like dishes and you’ve got a minute, you should check out the Vintage Ceramics & Tableware group on Flickr. So many pretty pieces!
