The 1800s were a time of proper social gatherings, manners, tea - lots and lots of tea, and craftsmanship made to last. In those days when you bought things for your social events out of your hard earned dollar, you could trust that you could pass it down for generations. Most craftsmen didn’t even use the words “newer model”, not that we were there or anything. But that was bad for business because they had to move away from their craft to something else… without being paid to do it. While we can’t go back to the 1800’s without a handy-dandy time machine, every so often we come across something that takes our imaginations back a few centuries.
Take this Tea Server for example, coming from on or about the year 1844. We could imagine coiffed hair styles, frilly dresses and shirts, men in long-tailed coats, and bonnets smoozing in a social event, talking about the new horse carriage they just bought. Sure, you would probably rather talk about the car you're planning on buying and how much you're willing to spend, or some fancy new gadget, antiques are still nice to own. Especially when they're solid brass. I just happen to come across one such item recently. I will be updating pictures as I clean it up.
