Tea Time Accessories ~ Part Two
Please join me as we discover or rediscover some tea time accessories that often go unnoticed. The teapots and teacups garner all the attention, but these beautiful embellishments also deserve some attention. Last January I featured some different accessories which you can view here.
I like how this stainless steel infuser is in the shape of a teapot.
My favorite accessory~ I purchased a set of these teapot-shaped napkin rings at a tearoom seven years ago.
This sweet little dish can serve as a candy dish or an open sugar bowl.
It was gifted to me by my Great Aunt who was a prolific antique collector.
It's marked and from Vienna, Austria. My only piece from Austria.
I purchased this vintage creamer and sugar set at a tea shop many years ago. I have several other sets, but I enjoy using this one the most because of its tiny flowers and gold gilding.
The back marking shows "Germany, US-Zone." I assume this is West Germany. I am not familiar with German pottery. If anyone knows more information about potteries during this time period, please share. Thank you!

Thank you for reading and happy tea time this week!
