    I present to you, Paragon's Signs and Omens fortune telling tea cup. There were two productions of this cup. The first created was the 'chippendale' theme, the cup wears a white ring of embossed florals around the exterior, although the symbols dipicted inside the teacup remain the same between both designs. The second design is the same only plain in colour without the embossing & the print has a slight colour change from red to purple.
    Located in the interior rim of the cup reads, "Many curious things I see when telling fortunes in your tea".
    Below the slogan are numbered signs and omens.
    In my experience, these paragon teacup's were certainly a challenging item to acquire!
