Another thrift shop find headlines on Teapot Tuesday today. I am not sure of the origin of this one at all but it is hefty. It is probably the heaviest teapot in my collection even though it does not look like it would weigh much at all. I found it at Affordables on First where I have found other great teapots. It is covered in fruit and painted in some great colors that accentuate the contrast between the fruits. The handle looks like it might be a grapevine theme and it is such a sturdy teapot that I can’t believe it shows no signs of even being used.So what do you think? Is it fit for tea or should I just keep it as an unused teapot? I would love to hear what you think.
The cup of tea on arrival at a country house is a thing which, as a rule, I particularly enjoy. I like the crackling logs, the shaded lights, the scent of buttered toast, the general atmosphere of leisured coziness. ~P.G. Wodehouse
