Celebrate a cherished tradition with a collection of the very best photography from the TEAPOT archives.
A Royal Worchester tea set accompanied by a plate of heart-shaped petit fours signals love is in the air. Charming Bizarre ware from Clarice Cliff evokes the free-spirited tea dances of the 1920s. The bright, naturalistic florals on a Chintz pot captures the cheerful clutter of an English country garden.
And what better pot to serve out a morning “cuppa” than the charming novelty 1980s collectible from Paul Cardew in the shape of an eggcup, complete with a slice of toast dipped into a perfect soft-boiled egg.
Gorgeous photographs are accompanied by tea-themed information (including a brief history of teaspoons) and quotes: My hour for tea is half-past five, and my buttered toast waits for nobody. - Wilkie Collins.
