A break for a tea

First of all I would like to wellcome my  new Followers, thank you very much for visiting my Blog.

I´ve no news in which concerns my work, I´ve been operated a second time to remove the "support material" of my broken foot, and I hope to get well in a near future, and hope also to return to my studio as soon as possible.

Now I profit to invite all my Followers to join me at another cup of tea, and a slice of marble cake.

Tea cup from Limoges and marble cake

Porcelaine "Tête-à-Tête" tray, with a simple but lovely hand painted landscape

I "bought" this tea set more or less 20 years ago from an antique dealer to whom I restored some porcelain pieces, instead of receiving money from my work I preferred  to buy this antique tea set from Limoges. The lids have a few damages but I never had time to repair them....

The mark at the bottom of the tea cup

And of course a miniature tea set near one of my cakes.  As I can´t find any supplier of  good white porcelain one of the experiences I would like to try some day is to enrich some of the miniature porcelain I have, i.e. I intend to profit the decoration  made with decals of these serial pieces,  and paint some more detail and a border using porcelain pigments, there´s one thing I don´t know, if these tiny pieces will stand high temperatures of 780º., as always I´ve so many ideas on my mind and so little time to accomplish them.....

I would like very much to find good quality white miniature porcelain to paint, do you know any supplier?

  1. Ana, Your tea set is wonderful. There is a company called "Maryland China Company" That carries alot of blanks and supplies for china painters. Here is a link for a tea set.

  2. Patty thank you so much for the link you sent me, but I forgot to mention that I needed a supplier for miniature porcelain, in which concerns scale 1/1 I have several pieces.

    But I thank you as well,

  3. Hope you have a speed recovery.
    The China looks so wonderful and delicate!

  4. Por isso andavas tão afastada...espero que estejas a recuperar bem!!! Já tenho saudades de umas obras bonitas!
    Eu não conheço nenhum fabricante, lamento...
    Bjinhos e boa recuperação!

  5. Ana, The link I sent you didn't work for some reason. If you go to and look in their Children Tea Sets category they have a wonderful dollhouse boxed set that is $17.95

    It is blank except for a gold edge.

  6. Desejo Ana Maria, que recuperes depressa e bem de mais essa operação.
    Um beijo

  7. Apetitosas las tartas y muy delicadas las porcelanas, tanto las reales como las miniaturas.
    Sus óleos y sus muebles pintados son magníficos y realmente me ha sorprendido que una artista de su calibre siga mi blog, gracias. Un saludo,Eva
