The Silver Lady

One of our favorite finds...
we call her
 The Silver Lady

She's got curves
and gorgeous detail...

Just look at this etching on her side!
It looks as if you could put 
a monogram right there in the center...

Look at the detail on the base of the handle.....

 On each foot of the pot is a man...
oh the craftsmanship!!

Meriden B Company

We searched around (thank heavens for the internet!)
and found out that this mark from the Meriden Britannia Company indicates that 
this tea/coffee pot was made between 1877-1898

We don't care if she's tarnished...
she's adorable ~ quite the proper lady to invite to a tea :)

"Come, let us have some tea 
and continue to talk about happy things."
