The eBay Find | Vintage Tea & Picnic Set

Feb 26th, 2009 | Categories: The eBay Find | by Michael Williams

Another great find, this time from eBay UK. I waited until this auction ended before I posted, as to not to disturb the free market at work. Behold a beautiful English tea / picnic set. I envision Monty carrying this throughout his campaign through Europe, although this may not be old enough. The folks at Hogspear point out that it is perfect for a road trip or car rally. Couldn’t agree more. More photos after the jump.

    We’re getting dangerously close to jumping the shark here.

    I concur, dear sirs. If you squint, the tea cups could easily be mistaken for a some WWII ammo clips, and the knives become bayonets. My point… It’s not so much the subject matter, but the construction and detail. The hand done stitching on the leather holding the utensils? That shit is cool no matter what it’s holding. Keep on keepin’ on.

    That is one of the most amazing things I’ve seen in a while. Guys- be secure enough with your manhood to appreciate how freakin’ great this is.

    A gorgeous item! I love the vintage that one finds on eBay. Saves a lot of wear on the shoes.

    More Sporting than a brown bag or fast food…

    Mike is a little too right. Personally, I thought steamer hats were pushing it more.

    I have one of these and have never seen another. Any suggestion as to the value. I found mine at a flea market.
