A collection within my collection began with the acquisition of a tiny black teapot from a neighbor’s estate. This collection has grown to include almost 15 similar ornaments
I started noticing these tiny serving piece ornaments after I chose the black teapot from our former neighbor’s estate sale about 17 years ago. Once I found one more, it seemed that others followed at an alarming rate and now I am the proud owner of over 15 serving pieces with this delicate style.
All hand-blown with diminutive handles and or spouts in a variety of colors; these ornaments include teapots, sugar bowls, coffee pots, two handled carafes or ewers. Traditionally, a teapot hanging on a Christmas tree is a sign of hospitality. Whenever I come across these tiny serving pieces I just have to buy them. They belong together.
