Clay, plasticine, play-dough, sawdust and paste. They all afford the child the opportunity to make a three-dimensional impression of one sort or another. And then was she👠🧦🧤, standing at the sink digging the play-dough out of her demitasse cup.

The History of the Demitasse Cup & Saucer



The Demitasse (pronounced-"dem-i-tas"), originated in France in the 1800's. Demitasse means "half-cup", due to it typically being half the size of a full coffee cup. The purpose of the smaller half cup is for drinking stronger coffee's such as espresso, cappuccino & Turkish coffee, typically served after dinner. The Demitasse cup & saucer is the next size in the cup & saucer family (middle in the picture, also referred to as a "Demi cup" or "Child's size" cup & saucer). Today's average cup measures approximately 2-2 1/2" tall & the saucer measures approximately 4- 4 1/2" in diameter.
