I've been enjoying Poirot with my parents during lockdown, and the tea glass set into a holder that he drinks from is particularly intriguing. I love this simple design a lot, but looking up designs of tea glass holders it is remarkably hard to track down just what brand it was. I even used my little grey cells! I'm sure the set designers didn't make a custom glass holder for this show, though it's a remote possibility. I was wondering if anyone had seen something like this before?

I am an avid Poirot prop collector and I have the exact same holder. It is silver plate and I found it on eBay UK. It wasn’t expensive at all I think I got four for under $40. The trick will be finding a glass to fit it which will take a little patience.

What search term did you use to find it? Is there a certain brand of tea glass holder to look for?

The search term was ‘silver tea glass holder’ or something along those lines. Like most props on the show it has no known brand name and other than saying “silver plate” no maker’s marks. I don’t know if it will help you but here is the listing on the website of the prop company that likely rented the actual prop to the production:

That's a start at least. Thank you!
