The author Henry James once said “There are few hours in life more agreeable than the hour dedicated to the ceremony known as afternoon tea”. But why wait till the afternoon? Slipcast in decadent parian porcelain with accents of gold lustre, this wall clock makes any time ‘Time For Tea’. All the great British classics are there; malted milk with its little gold cows, the childhood classic pink wafer, the good old digestive (plain and chocolate), bourbon cream (my personal favourite).
“When tea becomes ritual, it takes its place at the heart of our ability to see greatness in small things. Where is beauty to be found? In great things that, like everything else, are doomed to die, or in small things that aspire to nothing, yet know how to set a jewel of infinity in a single moment?”
