Tickled Pink Tuesday and Tuesday Treasures Double Up
Happy Tuesday to everyone.
I am tickled pink to share some of my oldest teapot treasures today. It is a good idea for me to write about my tea treasures because I have completely forgotten when and where I bought these beauties. I know that it was early on in my marriage so that makes them over 30 years old and they have survived several major moves as well.
I know why I bought the cute cat one - I like cats. This was the first tea pot I ever bought. I think I may have decided to collect novelty pots and I know I was definitely egged on by my husband to buy the cow and the alligator purse. I can remember now that I nearly bought a pineapple pot from the Big Pineapple but it was too expensive and I bought a cup and saucer instead. I have no idea where that is now. It was pretty ugly anyway :)
My favourite is the cat pot. It is made of nice china and feels nice to handle. It only has copyright FF on the bottom ...
I have just looked up FF and have found out that I have a vintage 1980's Fitz and Floyd tea pot. Cool!
The cow just has made in China but the alligator has copyright Vandor. I looked that up and realize I am the owner of a Vandor Classic Collectable. It is made of pottery and feels a bit chalky and light. Unfortunately it chips easily and has a couple of small chips in it. I can't find any pictures of it online so maybe it is a really valuable one :)
I have had a lot of fun examining my old tea pots. Don't forget to visit Tuesday Treasures with Melody today and Tickled Pink with Allie and Cheryl on my tomorrow for their today :)
