Inspired by the beloved book series written by Kay Thompson, our Eloise 14-piece Tin Tea Set caters to the rambunctious 6 year old within us all who dreams to live on the top floor at The Plaza Hotel. Staying true to Eloise's style with signature pink color palette, the Tin Tea Set includes 1 tray, a teapot with lid, two cups, two saucers, two plates, two spoons, and two napkins. Scenes of Eloise's adventures and mischief come to life with Hilary Knight's illustrations of Eloise, Nanny, her dog Weenie, and pet turtle Skiperdee on plates and tray. Great for arranging rawther fabulous and impromptu tea parties anytime and anywhere!
The New-York Historical Society celebrates the feisty charm and audacious spirit of Eloise, who continues to be a picture book superstar more than 60 years after her debut. Eloise at the Museum, on view June 30, 2017 - October 9, 2017, reveals the creative collaboration between cabaret star Kay Thompson (1909–1998) and the young illustrator Hilary Knight (b. 1926) that brought the precocious character to life. The exhibition showcases more than 75 objects, ranging from original manuscript pages to sketchbooks, portraits, photographs, and vintage dolls.
