I bought this little cup and saucer in Paris!!! wow - I had to buy a coffee maker and cups to drink out of in my little room. The other cup broke...they were from the equivalent of the 'Al's 5& 10' so I guess I'm lucky to have one still. There is a coffee shop in Venice beach Ca. called 'Coffee and sympathy' and I just have always loved that name ...two things one should never be without.
