Description

The tea, saucer, and tray are representative of Ms. Al-Badry's native Iraqi culture. During our interview in Ms. Al-Badry's home, her mother provided refreshments, including Iraqi tea. The saucer is used for special occasions, such as having guests in the home. Ms. Al-Badry told us that in Iraqi culture, the first things guest get is tea. This set was brought from Iraq by Ms. Al-Badry's mother on one of her recent trips to Iraq.
