As promised–a view of another of my teapots from my massive collection! This one is actually part of a child’s tea set and is VERY special to me. It belonged to my Daddy’s sister. I never really knew my Aunt Ruth–she passed away when she was a young mother. My daddy took the tea set when we cleaned out my grandparent’s house and eventually he asked me if I would like to have it. This was way before my teapot collection phase started so maybe he knew!!! I loved it and even though it did suffer some damage in one of our moves and I am left with only 4 of the original teacups the rest of the set is in good shape for as old as it is. I keep it in the oak barristers bookcase that also came from my Grandma and Grandpa Brown that my parents passed along to me.
