At the weekend Green flea market on 79th Street and Amsterdam stands an awesome display of tea cups, pots, and saucers that are conspicuously delicate and rare. Sharon Murphy’s tea cup collection never fails to attract the curious and the collector. Her cups are distinct, and clearly a collection from time knows when and from the old worlds of Europe (England, Hungary, Germany, Portugal and France) and Asia (China, Japan, and India). Usually pricey, but oh, the cups are worth a treasure.
Sharon, who used to be a nurse before deciding to be a full time entrepreneur, handpicks these treasures, mostly hand painted porcelain, China bone, Vintage English bone, and Limoges hand painted cups, saucers, and plates. Every collector will delight at the wide array of choices at Sharon’s nook at the flea market. Check it out in Manhattan’s Upper West Side.
