This lovely and unique designed tea ball is a reminder of a day when tea leaves were placed in a tea ball and then dipped in hot water. Most were just a round ball so to find one that is so uniquely shaped like a tea pot is very unusual. It measures 2 inches from handle to spout and 1 3/4 inches high. It is marked Sterling on the inside rim of the lid. The condition is good with some very minor irregularities. A wonderful conversation piece when guests arrive. Please refer to SC26.
