PRODUCT DETAILS
Description
A delightful die-cut card with pretty gold foil details. Adapted from a gilt and embossed illustration on a German greetings card c.1890s. Traditionally, tea was drunk from bowls, with handles only added in the early 18th century. Some credit the German alchemist Johann Friedrich Böttger (1682-1719) with making the innovation of handles possible as his invention of hard-paste porcelain created more durable ceramics. Previously, hot water had tended to make the softer ceramics available shatter and snap.

Made exclusively for Museum Selection.

Lovely little teacup cards! I own a vintage tearoom and thought they would be perfect for sending personalised messages. Very happy with them.
