Lunch and Lecture

February 20 Tea and Teapots: A Sip of History

Tea is the most popular drink in the world and its history spans centuries, reaching every corner of the globe. This magical beverage is brewed in the iconic teapot, which enjoys a rich past. This history of tea and its artful container will be presented by Yvonne Boyer, Art Library at Vanderbilt University, and will focus on tea and teapots and the heritage of a cultivated beverage and decorative art from Imperial Chinese earthenware style and manufacture to Jane Austen’s English manners and sociability. Join us after the lecture for a guided tour of the tea sets included in Cheekwood’s decorative arts collection.  Click here to purchase tickets.
