Vintage Novelty Pineapple Teapot Set

VINTAGE OF THE MONTH

Sharing a vintage a month, since September 2017!

I have a confession… I love pineapples! Earlier this month you have heard me gushing over my retro 1950’s style 3-piece holiday set in pineapple print. Today, for Vintage of the Month, I will be sharing this sweet vintage teapot set I have in my collection!

Look at all the mini teacups!!

I found this vintage novelty teapot set on Carousell (think Depop, but based in Singapore) a couple of years back for a ridiculous price of just $15. I had to get it. It had been listed for a while and it didn’t seem like it was going anywhere. So I felt that I had to save it from an unthinkable fate! I had to give it a new home and a new life! *cue dramatic music*

And of course, I did.

Unfortunately, it’s just been sitting in my cupboard all this time. For some reason, I just haven’t quite found the chance to bust the set out and let it busk in all of its vintage novelty glory. But now that a couple of pineapple flavoured tea has creeped into my tea collection, I think I might be ready to use it for an afternoon tea at home soon.

Perhaps I might even make one of those upside-down pineapple cakes using a vintage recipe? Maybe I will make a ketogenic version of it? Ah, all the possibilities!

If you think you fancy a novelty pineapple teapot but can’t find the right one, you can also consider making a pineapple teapot cosy yourself! There’s a free crochet pattern by Tea and Craft on Ravelry, and a a free knitting pattern for a slightly different design here.

I have a few other pineapple-related projects lined up. So, if you, like me, think pineapples are cute, you can look forward to more pineapple inspired posts coming up in the next month! xx
