4 O'Clock Tea

 

 


 

An afternoon tea party in the garden, with a Victoria sponge and scones with jam and cream. The table is set with a beautiful antique tablecloth with a hand crochet border featuring a '4 O'clock tea design. In addition to the words you can see motifs of a teapot on a stand, a water jug, milk jug and a sugar bowl with sugar tongs.  

This design is commonly seen on cloths from of the 1930's but this cloth is a particularly fine and early example of the style.  Teacosies  and other items with the same design can also be found. 

I have seen old needlework magazines that offer instructions to their readers on how to work the crochet and so many people were able to make these items for their own homes. 

Photographed in England by Ann and printed in Japan.
