Vintage 1970's Fitz & Floyd Palais Flat Cups - Set of 10 White & Gold Striped Cups
Too great refinement is false delicacy, and true delicacy is solid refinement. Francois de la Rochefoucauld
So classic in style, this elegant batch of gold rimmed flat cups was made in Japan in 1977 and exported to Texas as part of the Fitz & Floyd brand, a company who offered well crafted dishware to high-end department stores. Part of Fitz & Floyd's Palais pattern line, originally, these cups were companions of a complete matching dishware set and were accompanied by saucers. Somewhere along life's journey, the saucers separated from the cups, so they are not included here, but the beauty of the flat cup design means that you don't really need a traditional base. Nowadays, these cups look so mod all on their own, thanks to their perfectly cylindrical shape.
Of course they are pretty for coffee and tea, but this matching set of 10 work wonders in other serving ways too. Use them as mini soup bowls, holders for dips or hors d'oeuvres, dessert cups or breakfast dishes However which way you choose to incorporate them into your serving ware, they'll promise to make every type of food look pretty.
