Mormors koppar

These were my maternal grandmother's best cups and saucers. The set originates from Japan and is very delicate. I've heard they used to live in her most beautiful cabinet. I believe I got them when she emigrated to Australia in 1986 at the age of 65 and since then they lived in my attic at my Mum and Dad's house in Sweden, until I emigrated to Australia in 2001. 

I'm so happy they arrived in one piece... that they survived the long trip in my wooden box. For a very long time they were tucked away in a cupboard, but I thought that it's nicer to have them out on display at all times ☺ They add a bit of Asian charm to our home.

Have a lovely day!
Take care and be safe☺

Kopparna tillhörde min mormor och jag fick dem av henne när hon emigrerade till Australien 1986. Jag har hört att de stod i hennes finskåp. Sedan de kom i min ägo fick de bo uppe på mina föräldrars vind i Sverige tills det var dags för mig att flytta till Australien 2001. 

Jag är så glad att de höll hela resan hit i min stora trälåda. Jag hade dem bortstoppade en längre tid. men kom fram till att det kändes bättre att ha den framme till allmän beskådning ☺

Ha en trevlig dag!

  1. Jag tycker mig känna igen dessa koppar. Tror att jag sett dem hos mina föräldrar, men inte helt säker, man glömmer lätt ;)
    Tror jag ska kolla nästa gång jag är i Sverige. De är söta med sina små geishor på, för visst är det sådana på kopparna?
