At first we wondered about the origins of this particular teapot. The Pierre? The Plaza? The Peninsula? Well, thanks to the magic of the Internets—and our friends here at Etsy—we’ve been able to identify it as belonging to the Princess Hotel in Freeport, which later became the Bahamas Princess Resort & Casino, and finally closed down a year or so ago.

One of the last vestiges of the British Empire perhaps, and proof that propriety and etiquette should always be maintained—no matter how remote your locale.

This is certainly the civilized way to take your morning tea. Infinitely superior to a soggy paper cup from that overpriced latte joint on the corner. Sized appropriately for one. 4 ½" tall. In very nice condition. Tell the household staff to put it on a silver tray while they’re at it. With some fresh-cut flowers and a bowl of blueberries. Even if you’re just having a Pop-Tart, you’ll feel so much better prepared to face the day.

And if your name’s Patty or Paul or Petunia, so much the better.
