Hmm, seems like I've seen this picture before.....
Must be hard to come up with new and exciting things for us loyal readers?

if clairevoyant were such a loyal reader, she would realize that today's cup has never been seen on NYCE before.

notice the heart in the middle; you should save this pic and reuse it for valentine's day

in view of the purpose of the monday observation, i hope that dessert/coffee (?) was made in a union kitchen and that Spinnaker007 got scale for providing the art.

have a nice long weekend

Now that's a damn good idea.

Nice Deruta pottery! Makes me pine for the good old days at Torrefazione Italia ... the ones before all their mugs and cups were chipped and cracked.

kirk aren't you clever. i complimented the photographer on his savvy choice of cup and he told me it was a knockoff. pretty nice one, huh?

i just bought a set of deruta cups on ebay... i got blue rooster because they were cheap (but i might like ricco and raffaellesco a little better).

It IS the year of the cock/rooster, you know.

That cup's too busy for me, though I do like the heart effect.

VERY nice knock-off. Deruta has gotten so expensive, with the USD decline.

I also like raffaelesco, which is what T.I. used to carry at very good prices -- especially when it was on sale.

i bought a dinner plate and two dessert/salad plates from a friend of my daughter the other day. cheaply made, very undistinguised pottery, though with a rather sweet flower pattern. except for the three pieces i chose, the rest of the stack had chips. i bought them partly because she is semi-homeless and desperate for money (she said she more than doubled her money on the sale), but also because on the back, they are proclaimed to be "union made," something i have never seen on china or pottery. i probably will never be able to resell them, but after i do my research, they may be fodder for a story or column on vintage collectibles. also, i could always use them as a PC way to serve labor day victals.

i hope the full claim was "union made in the usa"

ms.ery: since you only buy vintage stuff, wouldn't it be true to say that nothing you purchase benefits TODAY'S workers, that the only ones who profit are the antiques or estate sales dealers? and don't you often take advantage of the ignorant civilians who price stuff too cheaply at garage sales?
