Tea cozies or cosies were especially popular during the victorian era, the 19th century, and were often the example of housewifely industry and skill. You can still find some great hand made tea cozies with berlin work, tapestry, cross stitch, crewel work , lace net, candlewicking and the like that took hours to make. Tea cozies are a relatively inexpensive collectible and if cared for carefully can be used as well.

Later tonight we get a new series of the novels Cranford on PBS which take place in England during the early 19th century. They are fun to watch for their period details. Look for tea cozies. They'll be there!
