Today was a cool day at J-Tea! We'd recently received a request for some detailed photos of the older well made tea caddies in the tea shop. The first caddy, a modern approach, was made for the Japanese market but manufactured in China in the 1950s.
This second piece, more traditional, was reportedly manufactured in Japan with high grade pewter in the 1940's.
But the best part of the day was that we needed some amazing photos of this beautiful tea ware. Andrew took these photos while I was enjoying a conversation with an interesting customer. I love it when the tea house works well.
