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.

  1. I think this a terrific idea and I may be able to incorporate at a client's home some day. Seems I know lots of gals with teacups... :D

    1. Certainly more fun than having them tucked away in a cupboard!
