Seek and you shall find...




Last night, I was helping my mom redecorate the shop part of her B&B/resturant/gift shop. I started digging around under an antique buffet and found these little lovelies.


Apparently they were bought for my nephew as a gift and no one liked them! Are they crazy! I love the look of Jadeite and to find something similar in this awesome blue color is just insane! After some research, I found out that they are Delphite with cherry blossom design. It seems they were designed to be kids cups between 1930 and 1939... but I'll have to look into it some more.




How neat! Just goes to show, you can find the coolest things in the weirdest places....
