Monogrammed Soup Cups

I went to my favorite resale shop on my lunch break today and didn't find anything I wanted so on my way back to work I stopped at a crappy old thrift store and look what I found !I love them.

                                                         
 The clock is a newer one and sure it came from a designer store like a home and living store.I came home put a battery in it and it is working.
But these 2 handled dainty  cream soup cups took my eye. The are marked France. I don't know if I will ever use them but couldn't leave them sitting on the floor in a shoe box at the thrift store, could you? They are just 3 inch across. Most 2 handled soups are over 4 1/2 inches

 I just love the little gold handles. I don't think your could get a half cup soup in them
The monogram is LAV? I think. I gave $10 for all including the clock

  4. These are so pretty. I couldn't pass them by either. I can't make out the monogram, I have some silverware with various monograms (I collect it) and I have a lot of problems with that, too! lol!

  6. So lovely! I have a couple of two-handled cups and had no idea they were for soup...thanks for the info!

  7. I think the 2 handled cups are for 'cream soup' bowl and saucer; usually they are about 4-5 inches in diameter and used to serve a first course of pureed soup at meals with a light menu. Very chi-chi :). Love them!!!

  8. Janice, I just love to read your posts and see what you have discovered. I love clocks and those soup cups are adorable. I would use those for other things besides soup, i.e. a pretty dessert. You will find uses for them, I am sure. Blessings

  9. Great deal! Love the clock too. I am kind of an antique nut, and you can never pass up a clock with character.

  11. Very pretty!! I agree with the person above who suggested the initials might be CAV. I wonder who the original owner was! xx

  14. Hi Janice, it is CAN. They are so elegant and they look like Limoges. They are for bullion. :)

  20. What a stunning blog you have, my dear, new friend, I'm following with such a joy !
    I'm so glad for your comment on ~ My little old world ~ and sorry you had some troubles for reading it in English, believe me, I distrust of every translator from Italian into English, they reverse the true meaning of the phrases, so I do translate by myself and you can find the English version between the text in Italian and the comments !

    May your weekend be filled with love and joy,
    sending gentle hugs to you

  21. I couldn't have left them either. They are gorgeous! Love th emonogram and the gold details. You could serve sorbet in them or perhaps a boullion as a starter. Great find!

  23. What a treat for the eyes! I love this blog. I am so happy you left a message on one of our blogs so that we could find this treasure chest. It's nice that there are other "hunters and gatherers" out there with our addiction. And the cream soups are to die for.....

  28. Dear Janice:
    That is a darling clock and the soup bowls - I guess broth really. They are so elegant. the clock is really nice and so glad it worked for you. We are busy just putting everything broken back together. We went to Pendulum Bob's today and he fixed 1 clock for free and also showed us what to do with another. We left the cuckoo clock but it never worked even before we moved so hopefully they can fix it. Tomorrow is supposed to be cold but Sunday I may be working in the garden! I am loving Missouri.
