5.75 in. (teapot)The Lifelong Collection of Keith and Caroline Gray, Charlotte, NC.
Keith and Caroline Gray were passionate about antiques, art, and history. Together they attended antique shows and auctions for decades – assembling a collection particularly strong on American coin silver, Asian art, historical documents, early images, and English ceramics. Both were longtime supporters of the Mint Museum in Charlotte, with Caroline serving in multiple capacities from docent to a member of the acquisitions board and trustee. Caroline translated her love of material culture into a successful career, becoming a certified property appraiser in Charlotte.
These three items have blue borders rather than the more common orange and dark pink.
Gilding on edges of all items has rubbing and loss; repair to handle on gravy server; rim chip to bowl; a few very slight chips to spout of teapot.
