A couple of weeks before Christmas I had High Tea with some friends at a little shop called Tangerine Dreams. Sounds sort of Middle Eastern but far from it; it was very English with lovely old English furnishings and china. The shop also had for sale lots of vintage hats, jewellery, dolls, and books. If you would like to know more about Tea On Tuesday find out here.
We had lots to eat, pate', tartlets, scones, little cakes,smoked salmon sandwiches and these classics.......cucumber ribbon sandwiches. Of course there was tea, several varieties, and coffee, all served from beautiful silver pots.
Loved this beautiful old silver dispenser.........not so keen on the paper sugar sachets in it. I guess maybe originally it held sugar cubes or perhaps loose leaf tea. If anybody knows I would love to hear its original use.
