A Versatile Beauty

The neutral tones and gilded scrollwork featured on Noritake 175 make it a stunning teapot to display and use throughout the holiday season.

Owning multiple teapots or tea sets to fit into a specific festivity isn’t always feasible for those with the inherent inclination for hosting afternoon tea. A versatile vessel, such as Noritake’s 175, can be a delightful accoutrement that will serve well from Thanksgiving to New Year’s Eve and beyond.

The gilded filigree touches on the body, lid, and finial of this teapot add panache to any afternoon tea. And its glitz and glamour are certainly befitting a celebration to ring in the New Year when paired with the black and gold of Noritake’s Valiere salad and bread and butter plates, along with Kirk Stieff Cloisonne flatware.
