Vintage Picquot Ware Aladdin Tea Pot Set 1960s English British Modernist Retro Art Deco Style
Vintage Picquot Ware Tea Set - The Aladdin Style Teapot looks to have been never used and still has its tag!
English made teapot, milk jug and sugar bowl with beautiful art deco styling.
Designed in England in 1947 and made in a factory that had made parts for Spitfires and other aircraft during the war, presumably by the same skilled craftsman.
Made in Northampton, England, probably in the 1960s/70s.
Made of Magnalium with a sycamore wood handle.
The Model T4 teapot was designed to make 4 cups of tea and holds approximately 1.5 pints, 850ml.
The teapot is 17cm high, 20cm wide. The milk jug and sugar bowl are approximately 10cm high and 10cm wide.
The teapot appears to be unused and is in near mint condition with only very minor signs of age. It has its original swing tag plus a product leaflet.
The milk jug and sugar bowl seem to have been lightly used and are in excellent vintage condition.
Picquot Ware is made of an aluminum alloy, Magnalium, that was specially produced for the range and polishes up beautifully whilst retaining that lovely vintage patina. Picquotware was cast in one piece to minimise leaks when pouring, with the spout designed to be non-drip. The solid consultation is excellent at retaining heat.
The handle is made of sycamore wood. When plastic became fashionable and very widely used in the 1960s, the team at Picquot came under pressure to switch to plastic but they resisted saying that nothing has the same beauty as real wood.
Note that we have attempted to show and state the condition as accurately as possible but this is a pre-loved, vintage item and some minor signs of age and/or use are to be expected. There may also inevitably be slight variations in the colours shown due to lighting, the camera lens and the device the image is viewed through.
