Today I have two teapots from England to show. Both have Pretty Pink flowers on them. Here's a shot of the front of both teapots.
And here is a shot of their backs. I love that they are decorated all around.
This was purchased when my mother went to England with three other friends a year or so after my father died. That trip was one of the highlights of her life, and this teapot was treasured by her. It has a good bit of gold trim on it.
The bottom markings are shown here. Mama enjoyed a cup of tea now and again, so she most likely used this a few times, but not often as it was "very dear." (That means expensive.)
Johnny and I went to England many years later, and even though I don't drink tea (other than iced tea) I had to keep the tradition going and buy a teapot. Teapots are quite costly, so I bought this little one.
Here's a picture of its markings. I've never used it other than for display, but I'm so happy to have it.
Sometimes we just feel good when we're surrounded by pretty things that have sweet memories attached.
