          This tea pot  The Kings Arms I got from my Nana in England. Many years ago. It was the first tea pot and the one that started me into collecting them. There is a tea house in a small village near here called Sparta that has hundreds of collectable tea pots , I would love to have them but for now I just go there and admire them. The photo  below  is of the tea house , click on the photo to read of this wonderful  tea house’s history.!

Oh I love your tea pots. You don't find them around here very often. Those village ones are so cute! Have a great day!
