Eden at Replacements

Handpainted by Alka Kunst, Bavaria Germany,”Eden” (under glazed green backstamp with crown used between 1938-1956) signed in gold with initials Mu with an umlat. I love the strange shapes here- kind of a scalloped square- and even the cup base is square. Because Emily didn’t want to call this one Eden (bad associations for her) she named it Eve. I would serve something light and sweet in this one.
