Antique China

I told you that my mother gave me my grandmother’s china. I love it. Even the cracked pieces.

tea-cup-2898

This one has a major crack that my grandmother painstakingly glued back together. I don’t care. I love it. You know how I have a weakness for slightly damaged antiques.

So I feel kind of silly…but do cups/bowls like these with two handles have a special name for them?

i’m not sure that I like being referred to as “slightly damaged antiques”.

I was going to say I have no idea but am now chuckling at superguy’s comment.

We have a snow day but it’s pretty ridiculous as there’s only one inch out there. I’m going in for a bit then coming home. Love this snow. :rofl: :dance: :coffee2: 8) :typing:

Okay. I remember seeing these. They were around in Jane Austen times;) I think they were used at breakfast for hot chocolate, and the high saucer was for pouring out the hot, hot chocolate and letting it cool in the saucer to drink…I remember my grandparents’ having these, and they were born in the late 1800’s. Hope that helps!

I remember my mum telling me that these type of bowls were for creamed soups. Don’t know that there was a particular name for them though.

I love it
I have lots of chipped cups
Mostly from my Grandmothers

I thought they were for creamed soups, too, but I LOVE Mental P Mama’s explanation. Superguy’s a riot!

SuperGuy, hon, I love you…but you’re not my slightly damaged antique.. :love2: :crazy:

I agree with Sue. I have several sets of these and always thought they were used for cream soups.

Well Did you ever find out about the china age and all? I have the same pattern pretty much but the bottom of mine says Empress China japan so I know there not the same as yours but I have to say there a close match LOL :) And I know what you mean about the chipped and nicked and broke ones they add a flare to mine LOL they remind me no matter how broken it is it is still back together again and just as lovely as it started out to be. :typing:

LOVE your china! I have set that looks similar. My china is from 1918 and I LOVE it! Your hand painted set may also be from 1918. The double handled bowl is a cream soup bowl. The small bowl that it is inside of, is a berry bowl. Cute right? :)
