Sit down for afternoon tea, that convivial daily interlude filled with gossip and camaraderie, soothing ritual, and cakes. Presiding over every tea table, of course, is the teapot, setting the mood with whimsy or majesty, elegant understatement or floral exuberance. The Collectible Teapot Tea Calendar features a year of rare and beautiful teapots photographed in lovely teatime settings. A romantic pink 1893 Royal Worcester is perfect for a heartfelt rendezvous for two. Emily Post's own favorite 1910 Calyx Ware set welcomes friends to a very proper tea. Accompanying each month's setting are morsels of history and lore from food writer Joni Miller.
