Visitors to historic Lanterman House museum will have an opportunity to glimpse a piece — or several pieces — of the past in coming weeks as the exhibit “Fine China from the Era of Emily Lanterman” offers an exquisite look at some of the finest tea cups, saucers and dinnerware of that age. The exhibit opens Nov. 2 and runs through Jan. 29 at Lanterman House, 4420 Encinas Drive, La Cañada Flintridge. A members-only opening is scheduled from 1 to 4 p.m., Nov. 2, and a lecture, “The World of Haviland China,” at 7 p.m., Nov. 13, by Nora Travis, a dealer, authority and author on Haviland china.
