Curiosity 8: Miniature Tea Set

I recently went to the local swap meet that is held every weekend at the fair grounds. There were many different vendors with everything from shoes and cell phone cases to old books and tools. After two hours in the sun and wind I managed to find this tiny little treasure for just a few dollars. It’s a miniature tea set. One of the cups is slightly chipped, but I don’t mind I think it adds a bit of character. The vendor claimed it was from the 1950s. I don’t know about that I just thought it was cute! This mini tea set fits in the palm of my hand and the cups are a little smaller than my thumbnail. What I really like is that the lids on the sugar jar and teapot are removable and the cups and saucers are also separate pieces.
