After watching Wimbledon tennis on TV, we appriopriately found this quirky “tennis match” teapot on the window cill of the country tea house we visited. It is an example of Sadler vintage pottery, an English company founded in 1882, and generally considered synonymous with quality and good taste. Their teapots have found their way around the world, and are also quite collectable. Possibly not so practical in everyday use, but certainly pretty to look at. Must say, today’s tennis fashions look quite different 🙂
We went to the countryside to have Sussex cream tea, which is a summer must for us. The portions consists of black tea (with milk of course) in beautiful china cups, and scones with strawberry jam and clotted cream. Delicious!
