Loreto Teapot - 0.8 L - Handcrafted in Italy - Pewter
This elegant pewter teapot is faithful in styling to a time when tea was first introduced to Europe in the 17th century, and is handcrafted by Italian artisans.
The shine and smoothness of the pewter complements the shape and style of traditional coffee and tea set pieces; the curves mirroring the beautiful Basilica Santa Casa, the seat of the a popular Catholic pilgrimage site in the picturesque hilltown - Loreto - after which this range is entitled, and emulates the ritual of tea and coffee drinking, which later became a bourgeois symbol of the culture of Enlightenment and industriousness, and now, alongside coffee, is one the staple beverages of the masses.
Four o'clock is traditionally time for tea! 'High tea', if sitting up to a table, or 'low tea' if around a low or coffee table - whatever etiquette, appetite or tradition dictates; it is all very personal, and should never be pompous - and should always involve a pot of tea!
