Scottish and Irish pride come alive during tea time with this emerald and just plain fun duo.
From Adderley, c.1970 and in white bone china with gold trim, this Cape Breton Island teacup displays a flowing green/grey tartan design, accented with pink flowers. A map of the Nova Scotia island, beloved by famed resident, the inventor Alexander Graham Bell, is set in the center.
In keeping with green, this shamrock serving dish will perfectly hold pretzels, crackers, or candy. How about burying the adorable little leprechaun (the smiling head will stick out) in a pot o' green guacamole?
