Joy said she found it after her local Hallmark store basically cleaned out its stockroom recently. There was no box, and no name or date on the tag or the ornament itself, and she wonders (as do I!) whether perhaps this was some sort of perk for ornament collectors or something like that. Does anyone know? I do tend to scour the globe in search of teapot and teacup ornaments, and I'm surprised that I've never seen this one before—and more than a little delighted to have received it as a gift!
