Bygone Beautys Treasured Teapot Museum & Tearooms is nestled in the village of Leura within the Greater Blue Mountains World Heritage Area and is home to the world’s largest private collection of teawares. There are more than 5,500 teapots in the collection, spanning five centuries and including teapots from all over the world, most of which were collected within Australia.
The Treasured Teapot Museum reflects and preserves the diversity of Australian tea-drinking culture. Everywhere you look you will see teapots and tea-related artefacts, old and new, rare or common from Australia, America, Asia, Africa and Europe. Teapots are made in a range of materials and are all on display including china, silver, silver plate, pottery, fine porcelain, cast iron, bakelite, decoupage and textiles.
Bygone Beautys is often referred to as an emporium or “Aladdin’s Cave” as it is stocked floor to ceiling with antiques and collectables, jewellery and unique contemporary gifts and cards – a trove for treasure hunters and all who love a living touch of history. Waiting to be discovered is that perfect gift for a friend or family member.
Enjoy the selection of teas and partake of lunch or light refreshments, served with olde-worlde charm on fine bone china. Devonshire Tea is the house specialty or indulge in a Traditional High Tea. Bookings of 20 or more guests will include, by invitation, a teapot talk.
