Welcome back for Vintage Thingies Thursday! Today I want to show you one of my most treasured possessions. This teapot belonged to my Nanna, and now it sits in a glass cabinet in my kitchen.
I love the design so much - the muted colours, the beautiful woman, the ethereal forest in the background, it is so romantic, in a kind of Anne of Green Gables - Lady of Shallot sort of way, but it is actually portraying Anne Page from Shakespeare's Merry Wives of Windsor, not Tennyson. Here is a better photo:
It is quite crazed all over, so I am reluctant to use it ... not wanting to damage it ...I guess this was a wedding present perhaps for my grandparents, and so dates from the 1930s.
Isn't she beautiful? Lucky me.
In these photos the teapot is sitting on my red and yellow quilt with the thrifted squares ... which is almost finished ... stay tuned!
