These two teapots have been a part of my Mama's home for a very long time. They doubled as decoration and as a storage place for receipts. She would stick store receipts, especially at Christmas time, in there in case they were needed later on. We never drank hot tea at our house and to this day I don't care for it at all! But sweet iced tea is always welcome.
The white one with the blue flower is the oldest. I remember it as a child and I know anything I remember as a child is old (grinning). The other one must have came later. I'm not sure where either of them came from. The doily they are sitting on was made by my Grandmother.
