Sherlock Holmes is the renowned deerstalker wearing detective who may or may not have smoked a calabash pipe. This Sherlock Holmes tea cosy has all the classic features that we associate with Arthur Conan Doyle's character including the deerstalker, calabash pipe and magnifying glass. The Tea Cosy has Sherlock dressed in a tweed Victorian style coat with leather look buttons.

“Another cup of Tea is elementary my dear Watson!”
