Staffordshire Teawares from Five Points Neighborhood
This tea set, manufactured in England, was uncovered during an archaeological dig of the former Five Points neighborhood, at the site of a former tenement building at 472 Pearl Street. While the neighborhood was known for its poverty and vice, this evidence of domestic life suggests an attempt by some households to maintain respectable middle-class standards.
