Can't be more tea here! No teacups!

I had a good time at my sister's house for Easter last week. While I was there I took a couple of pictures of her old china. Her's is a delicate pink flower pattern, and it is marked Elite Works, Limoges France on the back. After all these years I did not know she didn't have any teacups or saucers. None! But I'll be she didn't know I don't have soup bowls, either.

This is part of the china from a former ancestor that was handed down through our grandmother. She was our grandfather's second wife, and somehow she ended up with 2 sets of china. Remember the story that it was ordered on the way home from Monaco on a gambling trip? We don't know any better so we keep telling the story!
