Three Late Victorian Trios
Tea became the nation's beverage during Queen Victoria's reign. Lower taxes on tea and the expansion of plantations in India meant there was more affordable tea than ever before, making it accessible to more levels of society.
This is a pretty, late Victorian set, made in Staffordshire around 1890, it would have been used in a moderately wealthy household or tearooms of the day.
Condition is good.
