In the past, some people may have thought that tea sets could only be used by girls playing with dolls and Titas enjoying afternoon tea. However, these fragile pieces are quickly becoming must-have additions to many homes. After all, a few tea cups on a kitchen shelf or in an antique cabinet can make your space look extra charming. 

If you want to find the perfect tea set to display (and to use!), here are 4 pieces that you need to see:
