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.
