With a dozen beautifully arranged and photographed settings, The Collectible Teapot & Tea Calendar is a warm and nostalgic tribute to the cherished tradition of afternoon tea, with its delicate sandwiches and sweets, sparkling conversation, and the distinctive teapots that are the heart of the teatime ritual. Wedgwood’s brightly colored 18th-century creamware is fit for a queen. A 1930s acorn-shaped set by Burleigh is perfect for sipping tea among the changing leaves. And the crisp relief of its blue-and-white pattern lends a nautical air to an early 19th-century Castleford teapot. Accompanying the photographs are morsels of tea history and lore served up by Annabel Freyberg, writer at The World of Interiors.
