Not really sure what to call these, but you see these creations or versions of these everywhere. I came across these beautiful plates and then found tea cups that match just perfectly. It was meant to be. I adhered the plate to the cup and viola.
This one was made in the USA by Melody MO Co., just beautiful!
This one has 2 marks, Homer and Laughlin and Cunningham and Pickett, Inc.
I am sure they belong to some china set that is long gone, but I find them lovely on their own.
