CHARMING VINTAGE LEFTON MUSICAL HAND PAINTED FLORAL TEAPOT - PLAYS "TEA FOR TWO"
A charming vintage musical teapot by Lefton which plays a beautiful rendition of "Tea for Two."
Beautiful hand-painted roses adorn the porcelain teapot on both sides. The colors of the flowers and leaves are so exquisite and delicate in Sea Moss, Amethyst, Old Rose Pink, Lagoon, White Frost and Celedon. The design of the elegant roses and leaves is on the front as well as the back. Lovely gold sparkling trim on the tea pot in many places as well as scallops around the top opening and base.
There is a red and gold sticker on the bottom of the tea pot with the Lefton name. The wind-up mechanism is on the bottom of the teapot and when the teapot is lifted to pour a cup of tea, the music box inside starts playing Tea for Two and when the teapot is set down, the song stops.
The teapot measures approximately 6-1/2" tall to the top of the lid, 3 1/4" opening, 9" from the top of the spout to back of the handle. Capacity is 32 ounces or eight 4 oz teacups full.
There is a chip out of the top of the teapot rim where one scallop came off but it just adds to the vintage look and charm of this wonderful unique piece. Price has been adjusted for this imperfection.
Soooo adorable and perfect for a tea party or social event!

We examine each item carefully and note any imperfections, but unless an item is said to be new, please don't expect it to be perfect & even some new items have small imperfections. I will always state in the description if there are any imperfections & I never do repairs but leave them to others who are better able to do them than me as that is not my expertise.
Please remember that unless specified all items have been used and will show varying signs of use or wear. We always list the obvious imperfections to the best of our abilities. However, some slight imperfections that will not show or affect wearing or using the item may slip by or not be considered worth mentioning.
Vintage nightgowns & peignoirs may be delicate so I do not wash them in the machine. I wash them in lukewarm water with Woolite or some other mild soap, then rinse & hang dripping wet in the shower.
Since these are vintage items, a bit of extra care needs to be taken with them so they remain beautiful & I definitely would never put a vintage nightgown or a peignoir in the dryer as it would ruin it.
