Universal China Ballerina Rosette Pattern Teapot…

Just a little photo fun with a Goodwill bargain.

A pristine condition very collectible Universal China Ballerina Rosette Teapot found for $7.99,

but valued at close to $60!

I’m going to save it for oldest granddaughter and hope to locate some matching cups and saucers for tea parties.

She leaves for missions work in Ghana with her mama and daddy and little brother next month.

It’s a comfort to me to have something special waiting for her when she comes back.

(Photos textured with Kim’s Not Too Shabby texture, linear burn mode, 100% opacity.)

  7. You did a beautiful job with that photo, and I love the teapot. Am I the only one who thinks the pattern looks sort of whimsically upside down?

    May God go with them to Ghana and back, and may they see His glory!
