Handpainted Deft Polychrome Teapot Set

While living in the Chicago area many years ago we liked to take a weekend and go camping to the east side of Lake Michigan in the state of Michigan.  

The shore line scenery was magnificent and the small towns along the lake were quaint and fun to visit. 

On one of our road trips to Holland, Michigan, we bought this adorable hand painted Deft Polychrome Teacup and Teapot set.

This is a very small teapot...just five inches tall. 

It's a one cup teapot. 

I fell in love with the vivid colors in the deft hand-painted floral design.

Isn't it cute the way the teacup nestles on top of the teapot?

I'm still experimenting with our new EZ Light Box and the various setting on my camera.

Holland, Michigan is also famous for their massive and beautiful tulip displays in May.

  1. How cute! Just like Delft Holland. Didin't know there was a USA producer as well. How special! Thanks and happy TT!

  2. I love things like this. I have one given to me many years ago that I still use. I am enjoying a cuppa rooibus orange tea right now! xo

  3. What a cute tea for one! I had no idea about the Delft polychrome being made in the USA! Learn something new everyday!

  4. Very cute tea for one set. And that light box is something I might look into, also. Glad I dropped by.

  5. Hello Sandy,
    I also had no clue that there exist a Delft/Holland in USA. So funny. But the set is truly wonderful. I guess imigrates from Nederland founded that city. Thank you for sharing this tea set and the interesting informations.
    Best greetings, Johanna

  6. Oh yes, Holland Michigan! I haven't been there in years. (I grew up in the greater Detroit area) The dutch type tea pot and cup are fab! What a great set to have and keep as a reminder of your visit.
    Thank you so much for sharing with us.

  7. That is such a beautiful and unique tea-for-one!! I have some blue Delft pieces.

  8. Dearest Sandy,

    What a sprightly and cheerful Polychrome tea for one, tea set. ~ Thanks so much for sharing it with us!..,

    Many thanks also for your partaking with my 104th, Tuesday Tea For Two, and also TTTT blog posts, for joining me once again. I always so enjoy having you partake!

    Hugs, Wanda Lee
