These espresso cups and ceramic serving plates are exclusive to The Italian Shop.
We have just designed our own ceramic espresso cups which have been handmade and hand painted for us in the mountains of southern Italy. We are often asked if we can find Italian espresso cups with poppies on them, we couldn't, so we designed our own.
In true Italian style, these lovely coffee cups and sugar bowl come complete with an extra large plate to serve them on. In Italy drinking coffee is not taken lightly and in the home it is always served with ceremony. The cups are the perfect size and shape for a good shot of espresso and the pretty domed sugar bowl comes complete with a lid.
The decorative serving plate could always be used for biscuits or cakes if you prefer to serve it like that.
This set consists of:
1 extra large round serving plate
6 espresso cups
1 small domed sugar bowl with lid
These items are made to order and can take up to three weeks to complete.
As they are handmade and hand painted they will all be slightly different and not exactly like the ones in the photographs.
