Orange cup 'n' saucer

old cup and saucer,
acrylic on canvas, 25 x 25 cm.
There is a lot of purple in the pattern on this old cup and saucer, but somehow I think of it as orange.

There is a chip on the saucer, but I love it anyway.  It was in my mother's cupboard and I think it once belonged to my grandmother who loved and collected old/antique ceramics; most of the pieces she collected were chipped or mended as she had a robust family of four.
