This is .... my favourite cup

Oops! I'm one day late in joining Angela's 'This is' game.....
Her theme for this week is 'My favourite cup'- seems easy but it turned out to be trickier than I thought! My first thought was of a little black and white cup that I've had since childhood, but I could't find it anywhere at home.

Yesterday at the National Gallery I saw some beautifully illustrated dinnerware by Eric Ravilious, and a pretty little cup with a gardening theme caught my eye (it would have been perfect for me!). Unfortunately I wasn't able to take photos and the gallery didn't have any postcards showing the cup.

So ... as I can't find my favourite childhood cup, and I can't find an image of the beautiful porcelain I saw yesterday, here's my favourite cup for this week:


A buttercup!
