T42P - Morning Tea Set with Pot

Morning Tea Set with Pot

Weight: - 1lb. 12 oz.

This set first appears in the 1927 catalogue: -

"With Tea Pot No. 145. 25/- (24/-). A gift which will have daily use, and being light in weight, is just the thing for invalids."

Consists of: 1 x 143 tray, 2 x 135 teacups, 2 x 136 saucers, 1 x 137 cream jug, 1 x 138 sugar bowl and 1 x 145 teapot. See also T42 - Morning Tea Set.

Interestingly, in later versions of this set, the Tea Pot is replaced by a metal one and the milk jug is replaced by a 144J - Childs Tea Pot, presumably to reflect the fact that the teapot was not very effective for holding hot water! See T42AP below.
