This Swedish coffee pot was passed down to me by my mother and hers. Every time I look at it I can almost smell her oatmeal raisin cookies:)Thank you Elisbethan for the translation!

    Hello, sarahoff.
    I like your teapot very much, but the tekst on it is defenitely not Dutch...
    it looks more like Swedish or from Norway..

    Don't know if you were given an answer to this, if not Sarahoff, I can tell you with 100 certanty that the writing is in Swedish! I understand every word and it's a swedish saying that means that a drink of Coffee is the bbest of earthly drinks (you would have to be in paradice I guess in order to find something better). We love our Coffee :-).The flowers are printed in 'kurbits' style, the same that you see on Dalahästar (wodden horses). This type of writing you often find on handkrafted textiles that you pot on the wall. I've never seen it like this before. Nice!

    It is nice to help out with information. Is there any label on it? Do you have swedish ancestry (hope I ute the right word now)?
