Tea Cup Thursday

Here we go again...Tea Cup Thursday on Friday. Maybe it's Thursday somewhere in the world? This is my personal china. I was fortunate enough to inherit it from my maternal grandmother. The name of the pattern is Christmas Ball, rather appropriate? It is made by Noritake and has to be at least 100 years old. It is cream colored on the bottom half with a light yellow tone behind the gold balls. I do love this set so much. I have a coffee pot, demitasse set, lots of bowls and platters and many, many dishes. I hope you enjoy looking at it and I wish you all a Merry Christmas!
                                                   Here is the precious tea cup and saucer.
                                                       Here is my Christmas Ball tea pot
                                         Does anyone know why the Noritake crest has an M?
    This little santa painting is mine I like to do folk art paintings as well as botanicals. It keeps my mind fresh ( I think!)
                                                          Adding a little sparkle for Christmas!
                                                           Really, this is so much fun!
