French Flea Market Lucky Find

One of the things I enjoy doing when I am in Durfort in France teaching is going to the local Sunday Flea Markets. They take place in a different local village every Sunday and you can find all kinds of wonderful things, including pastry, old French books, postcards, clock parts, vintage linens, Limoges teapots and more.....The china set in the picture above was a lucky find. It was on a table crowded with other pieces of china and as I passed by I just happened to see the set onthe back of the table top display. I was able to purchase the set at a reasonable price and then find room in my suitcase to bring it home by throwing out a lot of useless clothing, underwear and shoes, etc.

Does anyone know what the set of graduated sizes of teapots could possibly been used for?
