Five-piece set includes a tea pot, a coffee pot, a creamer, a sugar bowl and a tray. The edge of the tray and the bases of the tea and coffee pots are wrapped in rattan, and handles that extend out from the side of the pots are made from “responsibly sourced” mammoth tusk. A half moon cutout on the top of the pots houses a sliding lid, moved by a small pill-shaped handle.
