12 November 18: RA cup pinchers…

Welcome to a new week, folks. As a kid I’d go to the Royal Academy of Arts with my mum, and (typical kid) one of the highlights for me was the cafe. One year they had THE most gorgeous multicoloured crockery. So gorgeous was it, in fact, that the story goes they eventually had to stop using it because it kept on getting pinched (RA customers purloining plates and cups? Whatever next?!) This cup at Colour File HQ (second from right) is from this collection BUT it was bought from the shop, so thankfully when I pick it up to use it it isn’t red hot…Beautiful, isn’t it? Anyone else remember this crockery from the RA? It was either the 80s or 90s, can be exactly sure. Have a great day.
