My Morning Coffee: White with Gold and Red

Yet another from the inherited embryo-collection (and yet another "favorite"). English. I like it for many reasons. I like all those gold curlicues that almost literally say "fancy". And I really like the vivid red punctuation points, subtly raised, a really magic deep red, tinged with orange, the kind of red, back in the day, probably required serious effort to get the fixings for and make. (To be clear, I have no idea what I'm talking about.) And I like that it's big, that it comfortably fits a nice whopping double (or even triple) espresso, a big pretty cup that promises my inner caffeine junkie an imminent generous delicious fix. Mmm, big fancy delicious fix...
