Coffee cups have as much history as the coffee itself. And, these follow in suite. The cup and its saucer are decorated with the traditional blue and white. The designs on each cup complement those of its saucer with typically hand painted large vegetal-floral designs. The cup itself is fairly thin to keep the coffee warm longer. Not only are these items delicate, but they are produced from high quality Turkish ceramics. Although decorated, these cups retain a degree of simplicity and elegance. They are great for gifting or, even, your afternoon coffee.
