Delft (Holland) Blue and White Painted Tea Bag Holder

$ 8.00

A small oval shaped blue and white Delftware dish with hand painted flowers around pointed edges.  The dish measures 6 1/4" long, 3 1/4" wide, and 5/8" high.  The bottom is marked "Elesva Delfts..."  It is assumed that this dish was used to hold tea bags, as there is light crazing that reveals some staining in the center where the tea bag would rest.  The overall condition is good, with no chips or cracks, and just the aforementioned crazing.
