Pizzicato is a musical term meaning playing a passage by plucking the strings instead of bowing them. The sound becomes light, lyrical and rhythmical as is this printed orange or light blue flower pattern on the cup and plates.
A set of a cup and a saucer for hot drinks. Usually used for serving coffee- or espresso-based drinks but also hot chocolate or tea.
This beautiful cup has small signs of use: some worn parts and darkened spots on the edges of the cup and the handle's point of contact with the cup.
