Pink Luster Cup And Saucer With Unusual Saucer
This is the coolest shaped saucer for a cup and saucer. Very unusual! It's not flat or slightly concave, it has a raised central pedestal. How cool is that! I acquired this with an estate lot of cups and saucers and fell in love with it!.
The pink panels have a hand painted gold overlay and the white panels have a floral motif and all of the cup ans saucer has a luster finish and lots of gold trim. The saucer has the Lefton China, Japan mark as well as most of the original foil sticker. It was obviously treasured and was hardly ever used. I LOVE it!

Was just in Utah to visit our kids and grandkids (both families) which was so cool. Had a great afternoon at the Museum Of Ancient Life at Thanksgiving Point. Had a great museum experience...one of the best paleontology museums I've seen. And we had a 3D movie which was fun. There was a lot more to see there but we'll save that for another visit.
Our dtr has just moved to a new house near Snowbird and is at 6,500 feet. It was lovely to see the quaking aspens in their fall color.
We're back in Sequim, Washington now...it's been raining today but has been gorgeous with sunny fall days for the last several. Just like it was when we first arrived to find our new home. We LOVE it when it's like this! Clear fresh ocean air. I best at the coast!
Have a great week and stop and savor the sights and sounds of autumn, they are a delight for all the senses!
