Tea Time!


Be sure to hold your teacups correctly and have your best tea set out! Only the families of the best taste had tea, so it would quite worthwhile to pose with it to exude your wealth. Oh and you'll be happy to note Wedgwood is having a "sale" on this tea set which actually does come with a handgrip on the teacup.

That Wedgwood set is also on Rue La La ... I can send invites if anyone would like to purchase it!

Do you know where this painting is located? Is it in a museum? I love it!

Thanks!

I have a few Wedgwood pieces I've collected over the years. Lovely stuff.

I like the lady's dress, by the way.

I would have to be a family of best taste in the 18th century then, because I love tea! ^_^

I believe this painting is at the V&A. No doubt hidden among the knick-knacks and interiors!

I am sad to say I do not have a 'best' tea set...
