Size: 6″ w x 6″ h
Support: Gallery Wrap Stretched Canvas
Description:  A small still life painting of a fine china teacup and saucer that grandma or great-grandma might drink from. The teacup and saucer have burgundy and gold designs on them. And there is also a burgundy silk flower sitting in the saucer next to the teacup. The background is dark with a gold tabletop. This delicate and colorful teacup painting would be the perfect addition to a small kitchen, dining area, or living room to add a touch of class to the space. The painting is signed by artist Teresa Bernard.

This painting’s small size makes it perfect for small rooms or areas where space is limited. It measures 6×6 inches and is hand-painted on gallery wrap stretched canvas. Grandma’s Teacup won’t need a frame because the painting’s composition spreads out around the edges of the canvas giving it a fashionable look. Framed or unframed, this painting will look great in your home or office, or any place it is put on view.

Artist Comments

I named this painting Great-Grandma’s Fine China Teacup because, in this day and age of Starbucks, paper cups, and travel mugs, the art of drinking coffee or hot tea from fine china is quickly becoming a thing of the past for a great many Americans. Well, at least that is my perspective.

Here is a case in point. I read once about a young bride-to-be preparing for her upcoming wedding and how her mother coerced her into adding a set of fine china to her bridal registry. The young woman felt it would be ludicrous to do so as the china set would never get used except for holidays and perhaps rarely even then.

For many Americans, I guess there is no longer any need for the loving memories that come from pulling out the fine china and using it for special occasions like our great-grandmas did, or is there? And I guess it has been forgotten that hot beverages taste much better when consumed from a cup made of fine china. And not failing to mention, teacups are pretty, and they are dainty, which also helps to make a special occasion just that much more special.

So what are you waiting for? Pull out great-grandma’s (or grandma’s) fine china and put it to good use today. You’re not getting any younger.
