Tea Cup Pansies

8" x 5" Oil on Linen Board
Available for Purchase

This tea cup is from a collection my mother had which she called "movie dishes".  She used to tell me stories of when she was a child in the depression.  One such story was about the weekend activity of going to the movies.  For 11 cents they were admitted to the movies, received a gift piece of Lusterware china like this tea cup, and had entertainment for an entire afternoon.  While the movie traditions are long gone, this piece of china still survives.  I hope you enjoy the painting as well as the story that went along with it.
