China Painting

China painting, so soft and just beautiful. All of these except the round plate were painted by a great aunt.



This is a waffle set for powdered sugar and syrup

They're beautiful. I'm sure that you cherish them. My Grandmother used to play cards with a group of ladies. One of them painted china. The group would pool their money, buy one of her plates and the winner would take it home. Her china cabinet was lined with these beautiful plates.
