What a sad, but beautiful mess!
So ... this used to be a beautiful tea cup I found the other weekend at an estate sale. I was quite excited about it, too!
Shortly after posting about how beautiful my amaryllis was, this disaster took place.
Early one morning, while we were still asleep, we were awakened by a large CRASH!
We went downstairs to see what this could have been ... and there on the floor was the amaryllis and my little tea cup. Plant, pot and tea cup all smashed into pieces.
We are guessing one of the flowers opened up, and knocked to amaryllis off balance. I guess 6 flowers were just too many for my tall plant and its pot could not keep it standing. It fell and brought this little tea time treasure along with it
You can see what is left of the back stamp. This pattern was produced between 1927-1935. Oh, what a sad, sad day!
What should I do with all my broken pieces? I think they are still quite beautiful!
