Vintage 1950s Pewter Tea Set  CK Holland Tea Pot

This teapot has a rattan handle and a hinged lid and it is in a classic round design.  

The teapot is 12cm high with the lid, 11cm deep and 22cm from the tip of the spout to the end of the handle. 

It is in very nice vintage condition with light surface wear. There are no dents or warping.

I have not cleaned these pieces.

Thank you!

Tiel is one of the oldest towns in the Netherlands. Originally located on the Linge river it became an important centre of trade in the early Middle Ages, especially after the demise ofDorestad in the 9th century. 
Tiel has also been known for its pewter industry. The last pewter factory cum museum, which mainly produced collectibles for tourists, went bankrupt in early 2004, but has since been revived. Tiel can be a good starting point to explore the rest of the scenic Betuwe area, particularly in May when all the fruit trees in the surrounding areas are in bloom.

The CK firm was established in 1896 by Coen Kurz who had worked at Daalderop first. Originally the firm was called C. Kurz & Co, Holland, and served as a metal working factory. In 1899 a new factory was established after there had been a fire. In 1906 the company established another factory in Kleve, to produce gas and paraffin lamps. In the meantime the staffing increased to over 100 employees. Gradually the company would also produce copper, nickel, and gilded ornaments. During the first world war they'd also produce munition.
