Christmas Teapots - Part III

I must say, this series led to a bigger project than I anticipated, but it was fun going through totes and seeing treasures I had forgotten about.  

I found the luncheon plates and mugs that match the Royal Albert "Ruby Celebration" teapot.

I love my "Cup of Christmas Tea" tea set.  I only have two teacups.  You don't see them often in antique stores, and they're pricey on e-bay at this time of the year.  A few years back when I coordinated a Christmas tea for the ladies of my church, one lady set a complete table for 8 with the china. It was beautiful.  I have one luncheon plate, a hurricane lamp, set of 4 napkin rings, teapot ornament, tin of tea, and, of course, the book.

I did a Nutcracker tea a few years back for two girlfriends.  You can read about it here. My son and daughter-in-law gave me the teapot pictured below, four nutcracker luncheon plates, and coordinating place mats for Christmas that year.

~ My Christmas china by Sango.  The pattern is "Noel". ~

~ Pfaltzgraff [6 cup] "Winterbury" Teapot ~

The lid on the teapot below says "Christmas is God's Gift of Love".  I bought it because it goes perfectly with the legend of the candy cane.  I have the book that I've read to my grandchildren on Christmas Eve.

~ Teapot and Teacup by Dayspring ~

I especially like the saucer to this teacup.  Written on both the teapot and the saucer is Romans 15:13 "May the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace..."  [NIV]

The inexpensive teapot below was from Walmart several years ago.  I bought several for floral arrangement centerpieces for a Christmas dinner I coordinated at church.  While I don't use it to pour tea, it's festive to display at Christmas time.

I don't really collect single Christmas teacups, but I've accumulated four of them.  The teacup on the right was made by Blue Bird in Canada.  A pattern isn't given.  The one on the left is by Royal Albert and is called, "Yuletide".

~ The teacup below is by Regency [England] but has no pattern name on the cup. ~

And last, but not least, an English teacup with matching sugar and creamer by Royal Tuscan in the "Noel" pattern.

This concludes my Christmas teapot [and teacup] series.  I hope you've enjoyed it.  Now I need to get busy and host some tea parties using the china.  Ideas are swirling in my mind!


  1. You have a wonderful collection of Christmas teapots! I only have one Christmas teapot, the Cup of Christmas with three matching teacups. Thank you for sharing! I enjoyed seeing your Christmas teapots!
    Hugs, Nancy

  2. Love the nutcracker teapots and "Cup of Christmas Tea" sets. I've been hunting for a Cup of Christmas Tea to add my to my collection, but haven't had much luck finding it at the local thrift/antique stores north of the border.

  3. What an amazing collection you have Phyllis! Beautiful!


  4. I enjoyed seeing your pretty collection!

  5. Wow, Phyllis - I certainly have enjoyed your collections - you have a very nice and large collection to be sure!

    Oh I bet that whimsical poinsietta teapot with flowers in it for your church function a few years ago was beautiful. Did you get any snaps of that event?

  6. OH, so pretty! I have that Dayspring one, found it at a rummage sale last year. And two others, so that makes it a collection, right? I'm enjoying the pictures of your collection.

  7. Beautiful! I have seen so many new-to-me Christmas patterns here! And I do love Christmas teawares.

  8. What a gorgeous collection you have, Phyllis! I would love to organize a Christmas Tea at our church. Maybe someday. Thank you for sharing all your pretties.
