Geisha-Headed Teacup

Among our many adventures during the recent 3-day trip to New Mexico was a visit to an antiques shop. Rough Rider, in particular. They had a gorgeous 5-setting tea set that Spousal Unit and I wanted to cram into our luggage. Seeing as it was very, very delicate, that would have been a bad idea.

On top of that, this gorgeous set - complete with creamer and sugar bowl - would be for display only, and we have no china cabinet. Something would have been broken in transit, and then we would have been sad.

Luckily, we found a teacup and saucer all by themselves.

The best thing about this? When you hold the cup up to the light, a geisha's head appears at the bottom.

 So pretty. Plus, Spousal Unit and I like the color of this one much more. An awesome find.
