“No Tea” Acrylic on MDF, 6″ x 6″

I collect small, modestly priced, antiques. These teacups were made by the Diamond Glass Company during the Great Depression of the 1930s. This particular pattern, called “Charade,” is what was known as “Elegant Glass”—stylish products made by a number of glass companies. I am also a fan of English breakfast tea, and of course, everything tastes just that much better in elegant antique dishes!
