This is just a most remarkable tea cozy! It was made in 1946 and was given to the owner by her neighbor. You can read this on the provenance card.
The face is incredibly sculpted in a cloth form of an elderly lady. She is so elegant in her gold gown with mink tassels and muff. Her cozy has never been used. She is mint!
You can see by the photos that this very proper lady is unique and precious.
