Black & Gold Dionysus Demitasse Greek cup & saucer
This style of coffee cup is appealing to every age, and to men as well as women, so it’s a great option. This one is a small demitasse expresso cup from the 1970s hand decorated with 24 carat gold design. These cups told stories and were often about historical gods.
This one is the story of the God Dionysus whom was attacked by a Pirate ship in order to claim a ransom from his family. Of course, this God used his powers to retaliate against them by turning the ships oars into poisonous snakes. This frightened the pirates and they jumped into the sea. Dionysus took mercy on them and turned them into dolphins whom were regarded as sacred. Dolphins were guardians of the sea. So in this little cup , there is so much told !
