That is a beautiful piece, Bernideen! Do you actually use it or is it "just for looks," so to speak?

This is a large Victorian tipping teapot - yes I use it for iced tea at tea parties!

Bernideen, this is a beautiful teapot. Makes me want to start a whole new area of collecting. Oh, no! I can hear my husband now!
Thanks for sharing. Hope to see you over at my place today to toast Susan @ Betweeen Naps on the Porch. See you there....

That is a very unique tea pot, and your new banner is sooo pretty. I saw in a previous post how you used the old pillowcases. What a neat idea!
