Rosemary Browne’s Teapots


Rosemary Browne

“These tea pots were lovingly collected in memory of my darling son, Zachary.  During his time as a teenage cadet at Valley Forge Military Academy, Zach had a friend whose family were tea connoisseurs. He became a tea lover and started brewing teas of every type, aromatic, green, organic, as well as exotic teas from other countries.  He learned the correct water temperature for the different types of teas, the best sweeteners, and even the best pots for brewing. Visitors to our home were greeted with ‘would you like a cup of tea?’ which he would prepare with great pride.  We lost Zach to tragic circumstances almost 10 years ago at the age of 19, but to this day every cup of tea I make brings me closer to him.”

Memories & Inspiration: The Kerry and C. Betty Davis Collection of African American Art is organized and toured by International Arts & Artists.
