Special Gifts

These are two special tea sets in my tea collection. Both are gifts from my wonderful husband and best tea buddy. He hand carried them in his back pack from different business trips. The top set is the first he brought back from Armenia. He brought the bottom set from Moscow a year later. He purchased both sets at open markets without interpreters so I really don't know anything about either except that being typical of the region they are baroque in style. Both tea sets have six cups and saucers, a creamer and sugar bowl. The set from Moscow has some additional pieces, but I'm not sure how they would be used. I don't serve tea with these sets. They are displayed in our dining room.
