My China Treasures and My Talented Great-Grandmother

This is my only "real" tea cup
So I cherish it very much

My  moms, mother
( my Grand mother's)
Tea cup
Given to me by my father
when my mother passed away







My very cherished china water pitcher
This is a piece from  my father's grandma
(my great grandma ) 
  She was a very special lady
She hand painted and decorated china for a living
She would make whole  hand-painted china sets
bought by families 
for their daughters wedding gift


painted by my  Great-grandmother Munck

three colors of grapes

Great Grandma Munck used real gold leaf
on various parts of the chins, but mostly on the rims



My grandmother signed all her work

I suppose the 3/22 is a date mark




this is my favorite floral design by my great-grandmother 




this creamer and sugar bowl 
are something I found at a thrift store
I just thought they were pretty 


R  & S printed on the bottom of them.

Those are my treasures
from my grandmothers
and things i just love to look at
and dream of
a time now forgotten by most.

Beautiful! Your tea cup is really lovely with the gold and black and the pansies inside. The pitcher your other grandmother painted is really beautiful. How talented she was! The last plate is a very pretty pattern indeed! Your cream and sugar bowl too are lovely.
Thanks so much for sharing your treasures with us today! I am glad to visit your site (and I became a follower!)

The tea cup is so beautiful and unusual! I've never seen one so dark on the outside with all of the pretty details inside! And the painting by your great grandmother is amazing! You got your talent honestly! WOW! ♥

Oh my goodness Kat==your teacup with the pansies is one of the prettiest things I've ever seen. And I adore your grandmother's work--that is just amazing!

...your great grandmother's painted china is beautiful. How cool--I would cherish the pieces too!! I love all of your teacups and antique china. I collect old floral china too. I'm drawn to it...it's so beautiful and fragile too.

Beautiful china. I can't believe that your grandmother did some of those. What an amazing thing to have.
