Limoge French Handpainted Tea Cup

I may not live at Versailles or any great castle, but my home is sweet. Sweet because of who lives here and the little things that brighten our routine. This limoge french tea cup and saucer have a shimmer like a pearl or an abalone shell. It is a handpainted set and I wonder about the painter. Did they have a lovely garden? A big family? Love? I guess I wonder about these things because that is what I have and that is what makes my home sweet.

Can you imagine how much time artisans spent painting those beautiful pieces?

The craft and skill it takes to work on these cups is awe inspiring. I would probably be afraid to actually use one for fear of dropping it.
