Vintage Thursday Thingie: Tea Cozy



This is a vintage embroidered tea cozy that I really don't know anything about. Its done in chain-stitch and I love the folk-art look of it. It looks Indian to me but that's just an impression.


Its good to be back for VTT. For more VTT wonders click here.

This kind of embroidery could be from many different parts of the world. It is very special, and tea things are always nice!

Nice...do you use it?

Oh that is gorgeous!! It doesn't look Indian to me though. It looks more Amish. Of course, what do I know?

This is a very attractive tea cozy. The embroidery reminds me of Eastern Europe.

This is a delightful piece. I wonder if you might be open to the idea of photocopying the image? My mother loves folk art and reproducing this for her would be a treat. Of course, if it would damage the fibers that would be completely out of the question. Thank you for sharing! ~Kelly
