A Vintage Teapot for My Birthday

Thank you Mary,  for the beautiful hand-painted Gibsons Lusterware 1950's vintage teapot, sugar bowl and milk jug set made in Staffordshire, England. 
Mary knows I love English teapots.  She found this set in a Lexington Antique Mall just in time for my birthday.   

Yep, I'm a year older today, but it's OK since I have a new teapot to help me celebrate!

By the way, in case you wonder why the set includes a "milk jug" and not a "cream pitcher" — it is because the British use milk in their tea, never cream!  Cream is too heavy for tea.
