A great find

When I went to drop off some articles at the Salvation Army store I spotted this beautiful teapot.I recognised that it was an Arabia teapot and I know they cost a great deal of money when new.

This ebay seller is asking $110.  I paid $5 for my tea pot.  Guaranteed it has two chips on the infuser but this is not seen when the lid is on the teapot. What a bargain. I love it.

    Yes indeed a bargain.I saw the same Arabia cups and saucers in an antique shop in Canberra for a similar price as the eBay teapot!

      There was a dinner set too but I decided not to buy that as we have plenty plates etc.

    Lovely to bag a bargain.

      I was tempted by the rest of the dinner set but figured I didn’t really need it.

  3. What a find. A beauty of a tea pot. It is a pity it cannot tell of its past owners.

      What stories it might have to tell.
