My mum was a keen collector of demi-tasse coffee cups and had a large collection which were used every time she served coffee to friends.  This first one is translucent and it was very difficult to convey the light shining through the leaf shapes!
I really love this one for it's fabulous blue colour and the pure gold inside.
This very pretty one has a delicate lacy edge.  I decided to start drawing the base marks on the page.
This has an unusual shape with the scalloped top.
Another dainty cup with a stem this time.  I have no idea where Mum bought any of these cups but I hope you'll enjoy seeing the collection as it unfolds.
