This is my very favorite all-white small teapot. It holds about 4 cups - perfect for a tea drinker for one or nice for a quick fast tea with a friend. It is isn't old or precious, but I just love it - and use it often without worry! It fits easily on any number of my trays. It matches so much. I am not afraid to take it outside to use, either. That's a nice feeling.
If it should break I would be terribly sad and mad, but not devastated. (I risk devastating breakage whenever using my precious antique china tea sets, but by golly I have never been the type to wait for a better day.) I use, show, wash, love and even sometimes break my china.
Yes I did type the word break. It happens. It happened yesterday actually.
But I am over it! Life is too short to not use our pretty china! Why wait? Get it out of those cabinets and enjoy it while you are able!
"Pretty is as pretty does" my Mom used to advise. And she was right!
This is a sweet gift - a white heart-shaped Mikasa dish with pastel pink petunia and aqua leaves. You get a few peeks of a couple different cherished vintage embroidered or crocheted white doilies showing through.
Here is the back of the dish just for you, a very special friend. Thank you for dropping by!
