I have been given this wonderful gift from my mother-in -law it is a 'dellah' for Arabic Coffee (or Qahwa in Arabic) I will write a post later on Qahwa and its little rituals. This one is handmade here in Saudi Arabia in Raslan style. I cant wait to use it. I am on the hunt now for some cups for it (finjaal).
I bought these a few years ago but I had flowers in mind not coffee.
This is a very common style of cup

I saw these a year ago in Oasis Magazine handmade with red Saudi clay by women artisans all of whom are physically challenged

With a matching covered dish to serve the dates
 What do you think?
if anyone knows of some well designed handmade pieces please let me know.
