Tea Bag Holders

Today I’ll show you my small collection of tea bag holders.  Somehow I always forget to look for them at tearooms, thrift stores, antique dealers, etc.  This first one is the largest in my collection and could probably double as a spoon rest.  It is Portmeirion in the Botanic Garden pattern.

You can find more information on Portmeirion china  here.

P6301672 

This one is also Portmeirion, but the size and shape is different.

P6301673

To me, the shape and detail is prettier on the first one.

P6301675 This is a set of six porcelain holders.  On the box it says “Shape up your entertaining with our mini serve ware.  The perfect size for condiments, dipping oils, nuts, olives and other tasty morsels.”

P6301676I like the little cup and saucer for the handle on this teapot shaped holder by Mudpie.  The tag says “simpliciTea – n. the appreciation of life’s little moments while drinking tea”.  

P6301679

The last two are made in Italy and easy to find in many different designs at gift stores, etc.  I have Red Hat and Christmas Poinsettia holders.

P6301678I wonder how many of you also collect tea bag holders.

Oh, I love those tea bag holders, especially the botanical ones. Thanks for stopping by my teddy bear tea party yesterday. Glad you enjoyed your visit. The radish was fresh out of my garden where, unfortunately, the radishes are growing with great abandon this year and seem to be taking over! I was actually quite happy to sacrifice one to Cordelia Rabbit's tea party. :)

I collect these also but don't have any of the ones you do! I LOVE your Portmeirion ones! My own favorites are some handpainted ones a friend had her china-painting friend do for me as a gift! I like that these tea bag holders are small and don't take up a lot of room.

Great collection. I try to look for them myself but only have two. Can't say I collect them, but I probably will!

A very cute little collection. How do you display them?

Marilyn, I don't really have them on display. Most are tucked away until I need them. You've made me wonder how others display their tea bag holders.

Nice collection of tea bag holders! I have quite a few, but none of those, I really like the one with the tea cup holder!

Enjoy your crab legs! When my husband isn't home, I treat myself to Taco Bell! LOL! He doesn't like it, and I do!

The tea bag holders are lovely. I've never seen such fancy ones before. Thanks for visiting and you have a great holiday!

How pretty! It never occured to me to collect them, but actually I'm not really much of a hot tea drinker! I just like to collect the cups and tea pots! LOL!
