Large letters, spelling Papa, dominate the side of the vintage lustreware coffee cup.
When I pass this on to my daughters, it will have been in our family for 5 generations.
As you can see, some of the gold has rubbed off the raised letters. Taken the fact that it was probably made somewhere in the late 1800's, I'd say it looks good.
The "Made in Germany" mark is still very clear.
My maternal great-grandparents were born about 1871, in Germany, immigrating later to Texas.

There is not much dollar value with these two stemmed goblets. But, they are very special to my heart. I remember sitting at my grandmother's kitchen table, with iced tea filling the glasses.
I want to thank my dearest friend, Elaine, at Pear Tree Log, who is joining me today, by posting a "Show and Tell".
