Porcelain Cup


My object is a cup that my mom gave me. It has emblems that mean something about my culture and its very clean. It looks brand new but it’s not.The cup came from Puerto Rico where it was used as a center pieces, or used to drink from at celebrations and family gatherings.The cup was in my family for over 40 years, and my mother keeps it safe.It represents my culture and where I came from and my family. I think my great uncle was the person to bring the cups here and it went from generation to generation.The cup is important to me because it’s been in my family for over 40 years and it’s important because it has special emblems on it.
