Offered is a copy of the book, Silver Tea Balls, by Dr. and Ms. Seymour Shapiro. After many years as a surgeon and inventor of medical devices, Seymour and Dottie founded The Great North Coast Tea Company, specializing in antiques related to the making and drinking of tea. Together they wrote the definitive (and only) book on silver tea balls, which was published in 1997. The book is a treasure to those interested in tea or antique sterling tea balls. It is a hard back book, 10.25 inches by 7.75 inches. There are 284 pages and hundreds of quality photographs with information about the various tea balls. The paper is high quality and the research is first class. There is an inscription on the cover page signed by both authors. This is a wonderful resource book that rarely appears on the market. There is no additional charge for shipping and insurance.
