Tea With T & Japanese Lusterware
My tea cup today is Japanese Lusterware, or Lustreware...spelled both ways. This set was bought awhile ago on-line. The color caught my eye and the price was perfect ! The lady who sold this set said it had been an eye-catcher in her store window. I know it would have caught my eye and had me hurrying into the store to check it out. ...apples and hard-boiled eggs. Simple fare, yet very satisfying when eaten while sipping tea with a granddaughter ( Little T ) as we watch a Beatrix Potter movie on a cold and rainy day. Almost makes me yearn for many more rainy days except our property is waterlogged and my little lambs outside are bouncing in mud. I digress...where was I, oh -tea, ahhhhh, sweet tea-time with a granddaughter.
Granddaughter is very careful when adding teaspoon after teaspoon of sugar to her black tea."No mint, just plain, 'member, I don't like mint".Japanese Lusterware is very beautiful and I have shown some other Lusterware teacups in previous posts. The underside of the cups and saucers say "Made In Japan". I am drawn to this china because of the color, and the cups and saucers are so delicate you can see through them. I am fascinated by such delicacy in china . Look at it, it is blue with yellow-gold coloring inside, yet you can almost see through it! Hold it up to the light ,place your fingers on the other side of the china and you can see your fingers through it. I will do another post soon showing this set and the cups in more detail. We have our tea together as we watch the adventures of Peter Rabbit, my youngest granddaughter and I. Thank-you for joining us.Please check out the ladies below who host Tea Time Tuesdays.
