Today I'm featuring my Hall coffee pot and teapot collection. This is one of those collections that just happened. I found a custard cup and bought it, then I found a teapot and more and more and more until I ended up with this collection. There's more. I use two of the custard cups as salt and pepper holders on my stove so I can just reach in and take out a pinch while I'm cooking. We also use them when each of us wants a different kind of tea. The set goes well with two sets of dishes we have, so when we use those for dinner parties, I serve coffee in the coffeepot because I don't have the pots that matche the sets of dishes.
This was all restaurant ware and it is sturdy and heavy. It is very resistant to chipping and breakage. And, it's common as leaves down here at any antique store. I love the way the outside is so dark and the inside is white. Next time you're at an antique store and see one of these, think of me!
Now, cruise on over to Suzanne's blog to check out her figurines.
Take care and have a great VTT. Lane
