Description

A stunning antique late Victorian tea cosy or tea cozie.

It is made from deep cobalt blue padded silk and it has glass bead decoration with silk embroidered leaves.

The cosy also has three large bunches of grapes on either side made up from faux pearls.

It has a small ivory silk ribbon to the top but this is weak.

A very grand and elegant tea cosy.

It us in good condition overall, some small hairline tears in the silk and a few of the faux pearls are dented.

Tea cosies were originally designed to help with fuel consumption, keeping the freshly heated tea pot warm, since tea was much more of a formal event at the time, a celebrated social affair, it made sense to create cosies in beautiful designs to complement the home and tea services.

The attention to detail and beauty of Victorian textiles is something that cannot be found in the modern Mass produced pieces of today.

This cosy is no exception and there is no doubt it will add a touch of Victorian charm and decadence to its new home.
