A group of us Village Lady's had tea and cake at Sherry's house and we started telling story's about our youth. Sherry was serving us from her Grandma's tea set. She said when she was about 7 or 8 Grandma was having some Lady's over and she was helping bring the tea cups and saucers to the table and she did it one tea cup and saucer at a time. The little cup danced all over the saucer. Grandma went out side to cut flowers for the table and Sherry had a wonderful idea she went and got her glue and fixed these tea cups for Grandma. You guessed it she glued all of the cups to the saucer's. So when I saw this cup and sauce in the junk store I just had to buy it . I have not seen this before, the saucer has a deep in set and the cup sets down in the saucer . You can carry it and the cup stays put.
