Canvas Type: Gallery Wrap Stretched Canvas
Frame: Unframed; Ready to Hang

COA: Signed Certificate of Authenticity

A small still life painting of a fine china teacup and saucer, the kind that grandma or great-grandma might have used to sip their tea or coffee. The teacup and saucer are decorated in burgundy and gold. A burgundy silk flower is also sitting in the saucer next to the teacup. The background is dark, and the tabletop is gold. This delicate and colorful teacup painting would be ideal for adding a touch of class to a small kitchen, dining area, or living room. The painting is signed by artist Teresa Bernard in lower left corner.

Because of its small-scale size, this one-of-a-kind painting is ideal for small rooms or areas where space is limited. It is 6×6-inches in size and was hand-painted on gallery wrap stretched canvas. The composition of Great-Grandma’s Fine China Teacup spreads out around the edges of the canvas, making it fit in with any modern decor of your home or office. It can also be framed if desired.

The actual canvas art does not have the copyright watermark ©️ teresabernardart.com.

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 suppose there is no longer a need for the loving memories that come from pulling out the fine china and using it for special occasions as our great-grandmothers did; or is there? And I guess it’s been forgotten that hot beverages taste much better when served in a fine china cup. Not to mention that teacups are pretty and dainty, which helps to make a special occasion that much more special.

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