I spied this tea set on a trip to The Biltmore Estate and thought that it was the one that I had in my collection. After I got home and checked it out I realized how wrong I was.
It is not the same one at all that I first featured in 2016 here on It’s Just Life. Hmmm. Now I am going to have to see if they have a replica of this one available in their gift shop. I could have sworn it was the same one. Just goes to show you how bad my memory is and perhaps how many teapots I have.
So here is the one I have in my collection. I do love it and even if it is not the same as the one I saw in the Tapestry Room this past week it is a very nice one, don’t you think?
The tea set called Vanderbilt Service is one that has been adapted from a design that is on display in the Oak Sitting Room at The Biltmore. I love this one, don’t you?
Delicate florals surrounded by gold makes this one a special one to pull out when a special friend stops by for tea.
Paired with a lemon poppy seed scone and some lemon curd and I am all set to go. I am happily making lime curd all the time now (it’s so easy) so I don’t have to buy it anymore.
Pull up a chair and enjoy a cup with me. The water is on and the scones are hot and fresh.
