War Souvenirs

Coloradolady at http://coloradolady.blogspot.com is having a vintage thingies party. Everyone is invited. Gather up your thingies and show us what you have vintage.
This is a cup and saucer that a gentleman serving in World WarII brought back from one of the places he was stationed. No markings.

Another pretty little plate that was part of his collection.

Wouldn't you love the story behind the tea cup and who did he bring it to? his mom? a love?

Betty (picture circa 1951) said...

Very pretty. I'm wondering where you got it from. Did it come from an antique store or estate sale?

Marydon said...

Your teacup and saucers are so pretty LV...and I think the most unique that I've ever seen...I love that gold detail and the tiny size of it. I'm sure if it could talk, it could sure tell us some stories :)
Hope you have a nice night
Big hugs,
Queeni

If you think about it, it's kind of amazing that something so delicate made it here.

I love the last plate with the bluebirds! It does look rather Japanese.

Hi LV. What beautiful pieces you have to show us today and perfect for the link up. I have lots of pretty pieces of china around the house too, and, strangely enough, the vintage look is really coming back bigtime!!

Donna Heber said...

LV, Your vintage cup and saucer hit me close to home, for my dad brought my mother four little cups and a little tea pitcher when he came home after serving in the south Pacific. I remember wanting to play with them, but, of course I couldn't, for they were valued treasures belonging to Mother.

We broke records here yesterday...115 which was hotter than Death Valley!!! Thunder and a little rain this morning...hope this is a good sign that the worse may be over. Hope you will be having cooler days ahead, too! Mary

LV, these are very special and gorgeous pieces. Are they family pocessions? Our heat has gotten better, in the high 80's today.
