My wife and I went antiquing last Sunday. Mostly just to get me out of the house. It was sunny and mid-40s. a rare beautiful day in this winter.

We do high tea quite often. My wife has a collection of cups and saucers while the teapots seem to be mine. All acquired over years of antique and junkstore visits. We stopped with the tea items a few years back.

On this trip we found a pewter tea service. Not antique but that is Okay as one cannot trust the lead content if you intend to actually use it. This set has an AT&T medallion on the bottom of each piece. Probably a service award. It is in great shape.

We offered a somewhat low price and they accepted.

We used it today for tea. I love the look of it. With a pewter teapot you definitely need a tea cozy.

There is no scone at my place setting as I ate it while setting the table and steeping the tea.Biggrin

That is a nice set, I like English bone china for my tea purposes, but pewter is interesting choice
