By: Walkling, Gillian

Price: $30.00

Quantity: 1 available


This is a lovely exhibition catalog, elegant with its dust jacket protecting the plain white card binding. A book about tea caddies? Yes!Tea is back in popularity with brand new leaves and brand new flavors to accompany both new and old pastries and more. The "more" of course is the implements of tea and its rituals. The plates of the tea caddies are in both color and black and white for a total of 64 specimens.The book is clean with no names or writing, no tears, and no spine creasing. The catalog measures 7-/.4" x 9-1/4". The only faults ares a shadow on the front cover from an old price sticker, another one at the lower back corner and a tiny black mark at the bottom of the spine. Altogether this is a beauty -- even the paper is wonderful.
