Unusual Tea Cup #1

Several months ago I was visiting a friend in South Jersey.  We always end up in at least one antique store and that day we discovered a new large store with many vendors – the kind of store you can wander around for hours looking at antiques. As I walked passed a glass showcase I noticed two small pottery tea cups both in the shape of a cow. They were so delicate and unusual….I had to own them!! The signature on the bottom is …eilene’88.   The cups were made by Eileen Sky who makes wonderful whimsical pieces. Unfortunately, I have found very little about her and her work. Maybe I will be lucky enough to find another one of her creations tucked away on some store shelf!
