Default Photo Challenge #163 ~ Fine China {10/17/2012}

Bleah, I'm still getting over another bad cold. At least we had a long weekend away and I was able to rest a lot as well as taking time to enjoy the scenery - some to come for older challenges.

I don't know about you - I don't use china much. When it comes to tea and coffee I like a good big mug. But surely everybody has the odd bit of fine china - old or new - around the house?
For my photos here I just took what was to hand in the sitting room.
The teapot was acquired from an elderly family friend; her uncle was a ship's captain and had brought it back from the Far East. I've no idea how old it is. Sadly I broke one of the cups a couple of years ago, but it was never a complete set anyway.
The vase was a present for my 21st from friends who had just got back from teaching in Singapore for 3 years. It was beautifully packaged in a wooden box which I also still have.
The little cups are a recent acquisition from the Japanese Cultural Centre in Paris. We both love the gift shop there! I use these for little chocolate mousses, mostly.

I do have more to come later if I only make the time. What china do you have?
