Love at first sight - the duck and the teacups, Rococo 1830s

I was away at my friends' wedding this weekend so love is in the air...

I was thrilled when I found this Coalport duck spout teapot from about 1830, in good working order. So it went to my stock room but who knew the shenanigans that followed...

The duck, never one to sit still, came across the Davenport tea and coffee set from the same era. It liked the wonderful lapis blue waves on the inside of the cups - it was love at first sight and the rest is history.

The family is looking for a good home! All items are a bit worn but in excellent working order. And the teapot - well you can't imagine a more adorable and cheerful duck in your home with its grinning face 🦆 😊 .

You can find the listing here in my shop.
