Teapot, tray, and mugs designed by Bernard Maets, a little known but very prolific inventor of the 19th century. Bernard Maets lived a reclusive existence in rural southeast Wisconsin. He was known to enjoy a cup of tea most afternoons.
Type and Function:
This set is made from steel, copper and brass using many of the same materials Maets used for most of his work. The tray includes a chinese symbol and both tea cups are decorated with the two symbols Eternal Energy.
Somewhere in the 1890s the tea set was given to an as unknown collector. It later was sold at a Christy’s Auction in New York and then donated to the Maets Foundation for research. After years of research it is now available for a new home.
