Bygone Beautys Treasured Teapot Museum & Tearooms is home of the world’s largest private collection of teawares. Established in 1992, Bygone Beautys reflects and preserves the diversity of Australian tea-drinking culture.
The collection started in 1974, when Ronald Hooper, a previous joint owner of Bygone Beautys, came across a geisha girl teapot, made in England in the 19th Century. Like any piece of decorative art, this teapot sat proudly on Ron’s dresser and before long it was accompanied by many more teapots.
In 1992, Ronald Hooper and Maurice Cooper OAM, the current proprietor, joined forces to create Bygone Beautys. Maurice quickly matched Ron’s collection to give equality to the partnership.
Located close to the famous Leura Village Mall in the picturesque Blue Mountains, the original circa 1917 building has recently been renovated (reaching completion in August 2015) to create a new museum space which better showcases the large collection of teapots and teawares.
