Teekanne-Tee glass
« on: September 08, 2008, 08:08:19 PM »
I have a lovely amber glass about 3.5" high with a gold band round the base with the wording:

Teekanne-Tee   Wellronommee. On one side, and Ablage Fur Tee Pompadour on the other.

My Mother-in-Law brought it back from Germany during the 1939-45 war, when she was with ENSA.

I believe it is a tea glass used in Cafés and that Pompadour was the company who supplied them  to serve their brand of tea in.
I don't know anything else about this glass, and wondered if anybody could help with the name of the manufacturer.
I will put some pictures in the Glass Gallery.

hello Rosie!

hopefully i can give you some suggestions for translation:
i think the word is: Welt-renommee - world kudos/reputation
Ablage (failing a better word) is tiny storage place
for - für
Tee - tea (of course)

Pompadour is possibly just another (more ladylike) word for
a little bag, where women used to keep things like smelling salts,
powder box and so on (named after Madame Pompadour). It
may have been in use for the word tea-bag to that time, but
that´s just a guess...

Thanks for that Dirk, you are right, it is Weltrenommee. The patterns made it difficult to see the cross on the 't'.
There is a company in France that make tea bags, and they are called Pompadour, so I wondered if this was a manufaturers Trade name?
I am trying to post pictures but not having much success tonight! They all seem to have too many KBs!!

http://www.pressglas-pavillon.de/karaffen/03057.html and some more there  :)

www.teekanne.de - see Unternehmen - Historie

The glass in fact was for the used tea bag.

My f-i-l and Rolf Anders were friends in the tea business for decades, my f-i-l as import company and Teekanne as buying and processing co. I may add that the idea and invention of tea bags came from wessendorf

Anders and my f-i-l first met in London during the early Thirties during their apprenticeship tea business and tea taster....

The several Tee-Ablage glasses look very Walther to me, and I have to go and check whether at least one of mine is marked - return to you later  ;D

This and some more next to it are the vases for why I tend to Walther.
Unfortunately none of my six or seven different Tee-Beutel-Ablagen is marked - the only mark in the base is this Teekanne registered trade mark:

at least they are all in amber, or should I say hong chai - red tea - which is black tea in chinese  ;)
