If I remember correctly this is one of my nans cups from her tea service.

This is a real favourite to paint.

It reminds me of playing shops with her, the smell of her leather handbag and the scent of Polo mints when she opened it, the dark dining room and the noise of the kitchen lino underfoot.

It’s also got a great shape, flowers in all the right places and to top it off it requires a nice fancy lick of gold ink for the edging.
