Russian tea service - SOLD

Isn't this a beautiful vessel? A dear friend gave this to our family and I just love using it. I remember the last time I used it was with my girlfriends. We sat out in the screen porch, brewed the tea, lit the candle underneath and had lots of good conversation and laughter. The night grew dark, and the candle flickered and made the tea glow ; ) And it just tastes better that way!
6" x 8" / oil on panel / $75
