Teapot and Tea Things Tuesday

For my first teapot and tea things Tuesday, I’d like to show you a teapot that belonged to my Mom.  She received it as a gift from her older sister Betty around 1950.  I carried this beauty home by airplane after Mom insisted that I take it during one of our last visits together and I treasure it. 


It was made by Arthur Wood in England.  It is such a pretty pink, white and gold color.


Since it is marked Arthur Wood it was probably made sometime between 1904-1928.  I have read that the name changed to Arthur Wood & Sons in 1928.  It looks like the pattern is 5401 or  Athans, but I have not been able to find any information. 

P7061678 The pretty cup is Duchess fine bone china and made in England.

P7061679 It has such a lush floral pattern in gorgeous colors.



The A. T. Finney & Sons company used Duchess in many marks from 1947-1960.

P7061681  Please visit Wanda Lee to see her beautiful tea things and for a list of other tea lover blogs.

Hello ParTea Lady!!
What a charming teapot! What could be sweeter than the perfect pink with a bit of gold! And even sweeter that it carries special memories of your mother too.
And it goes without saying that a teacup with pink roses is the best kind of teacup :-)
Thanks for sharing your special treasures!
Hugs and Smiles,

What a gorgeous tea pot and tea cup! I have a Jewel Tea "Aladdin" shaped tea pot similar to yours, but it has the oranges and browns on it. I really like the pink one!

LOVELY tea things! That teapot is just my favorite, though. Never seen anything like its beauty in all that pinkness! I think I have a few Duchess pieces (though not in your gorgeous design, alas), so I'm glad for the history info on them.
