Yes, this is an old Victorian tea cozy, though to look at it, you'd probably think it is much newer. The exterior of this one is really pristine, with Christmas colors and 'feel' to it, it's a festive and fun cozy you'll probably want to use to decorate with or to actually keep your Holiday tea nice and hot. A new liner to replace the only part of this one that shows its true age, and you'd enjoy using it. Or just display it with your teapot collection. There's always that little devil in me that says 'this would make two really great matching accent pillows' - but I'll leave any such decisions to my buyer. Great fun and this one's every so tempting!
Very good condition, and original braided trim and tassles are still with it, too. Red felt is in remarkably fine condition. Lining needs a freshening if you want to use it - for me, at least. ;)
