A couple of weeks ago I bought off Ebay this Nuova Point ceramic espresso cup and saucer. I bought it specifically because it fitted perfectly for this frozen ball project that has recently found some interest, but I also bought it because it was advertised as ‘vintage’ (Probably looking and not real old) and I liked the little colourful Caffe Ocoa logo on the cup.
But, today when drying it, again the logo caught my eye and noticed something that I hadn’t really taken much notice of before. In fact , it hadn’t registered at all when seeing the picture of the cup on Ebay….In tiny small black writing was this… dal 1959.
Okay, so what? I hear you cry.
Well, the first three letters of my surname are DAL and I was born 1959.
Now if that isn’t spooky, I don’t know what is.
