My little treasure...

 I went to the flea market and I found a lovely tea set. 
The lid of the teapot was broken, but I loved this set.
It had to cost 15 euro....but that was too much...
But I could not forget the teapot (why not make it a flower vase?) and
the lovely cup and saucers.
So, I walked again along the stall, took another look at the teaset. 
The woman who had to sell it said:
Well, you can buy it for 10 euro..... 
hmmm....think, think....do I dare to haggle? I said:
Is 7,50 euro allright? And she said: Okay!
 So I almost dropped a cup, before I paid...but luckely that went well....
When I came home, I looked at the bottom of the cup and I saw:
   C (brand) T
Tielsch - Altwasser
40
And curious as I was, I've looked at the internet and there it was:
The teaset was made in germany, by the firm Tielsch in Altwasser.
And the 40 at the bottom?
That meant that it was made in 1940....
Wow...
I found myself al little treasure...
Just for 7,50 euro! 
And now it's standing on the table, on a tray and...
with a broken lid...
