My Lusterware

I'm in Love

I know I'm fickle.
 I fall in Love with so many pretty things.

The beautiful petite blue and yellow Lusterware teapot seen here with its luminous diamond design has cups and saucers that are so delicate and thin as to be almost translucent, and especially refined touch. The tea set was made by the Phoenix China company and bears the mark "Made in Checho-Slovakia."

I looked around my home to see if I had any Lusterware and I found two tea cups and saucers that have the same iridescent appearance as the tea set in the photo.
As Mary from A Stroll Thru Life would say "Yip-Skip" and I agree Yip-Skip!!!!

One is mostly Pink and the other is mostly Yellow.  The sun is shining into my dining room and I seized the moment for this photograph.

I love the pearled look inside the cup.

Never can have too much Gold.

Just a Note: The tea cups and saucers have no markings on the bottom and
I bought them at a yard sale last year. Yip-Skip.....

I Love Lusterware!!!!!!

  1. Hi Betty.

    I think they are each very pretty. Enjoy! La

  2. Hello Betty,
    oh my, this colorful tea set is really outstanding. Like a sunny day in bright yellow and dark blue. And the blueberry tartletts are perfect with it. The other two cups are so charming. I love the pearly inside also as I am a great fan of MOP-things. Thank you for sharing those beauties.
    Wish you a wonderful week.
    Greetings, Johanna

  4. Oh, Betty, I do love lusterware myself! Your floral teacups are truly gorgeous and your camera did such a fantastic job picking up on the iridescence of each one too!
