Polly and Jake Tea Can


This ceramic Tea Can – a retro-modern teapot! – takes a classic old railroad watering can form with its sculpted handle and elongated shape and combines it with the old-timey names of Polly and Jake. It’s an homage to the Polly and Jake Antiques Store that stood for decades at the intersection of Page Mill Road and El Camino Real in Palo Alto, CA. It is completely hand-formed and decorated in old gold, sandy yellow and black. The lettering recalls the actual sign on the store. Click on the photos to see the other views.
