The Return of the Conical Tea Cups: The far out art deco tea cup seen in a couple of early episodes are back -- four stripes on the saucer, handles shaped like the number 7, and very swank. We have yet to see the canonical curious coffee set... and the couple of episodes with the floral or bird ornamented tea cups proved to be a passing fad. I sure wonder what these are.
