When I was first married I didn't own a teapot ... a thought I can hardly even contemplate now. After receiving my first teapot, I decided it would be kind of fun to have a variety to choose from. I must have mentioned it around my grandmother, because the next time she came for a visit, she brought me this most delightful tea set. She didn't use it any longer, and thought I might like it. Obviously, it is not a typical pattern for a tea set, and I'm thinking it must be a product of the 1960's. But don't you agree that it is just plain fun.
