Out of the blue, I received this beautiful teacup from my sweet Aunt Wynona. It wasn't my birthday, anniversary, and nowhere near Christmas. Seeing the box was marked Franz, I was ecstatic! My family watched me in equal anticipation as I carefully lifted the pieces out of the box, we admired them, and then I carefully returned it to the box for safe keeping.
Silly me, these teacups are meant to be enjoyed, "Who wants tea!" I asked. I enjoyed my tea in this gorgeous teacup while the family was forced to enjoy their tea in more common English teacups. :)
