Would’st Thy Fortune Like To Read?  

IMG_4201-0

This is my newest, fun antique store find.  It is called a Nelros cup of fortune, and was made in England. I couldn’t resist it, as a conversation piece in my kitchen hutch if nothing else!  It was probably manufactured in the seventies, as many more delicate, bone china examples still survive from earlier times.

Notice the Astrology symbols circling the plate, and many unrelated, cool symbols circling the interior of the cup.  I enjoy divination via natal Astrology charts, Tarot and Runes, but have never tried reading tea leaves.   My elderly aunt often read tea leaves for fun, but she used a plain, china cup.

You can probably find everything you ever wanted to know about reading tea leaves, or the art of Tasseomancy, by following the link below.
