A Wall of China
Sorry, couldn't resist the title. Such a cute idea to display pretty cup and saucer sets. I saw this in a sweet shop in Kalona, Iowa called the Pink Begonia which featured antiques, collectibles, art and vintage decor and was owned by a mom a daughter. Remember when cups and saucers commanded very high prices, particularly if they were bone china? Not so much anymore so if anyone is thinking of starting a collection or just likes to decorate with pretty dishes, now is the hour! My mom LOVED china of all persuasions and had a large assortment of beautiful cups and saucers. No one ever came to our home without being served a snack with a cup of coffee served correctly with her best china. I am the keeper of many of those lovely pieces and my three sons actually have a few to keep as memories of Nan.
