I was looking online this evening trying to find information regarding a teapot I bought last summer at a yard sale. I was hoping to list it on Etsy, but had no idea if it was vintage or had any value at all.
While browsing the internet, I got sidetracked looking at teapots on Etsy. Would you believe they have 168 pages of vintage teapots, totaling 6,713 teapots?
Found more than a few that I loved and I don't even like tea. It would be so easy to start a teapot collection, but hard to justify when you don't drink tea in any form.
Well ~ here are a few of the sweet teapots I liked, and the links to check them out or even buy them.
This one is my favorite ~ I think ~ and is from the shop Hopscotch Memories. It reminds me of cool fall days.
This vintage Stangl teapot in a turquoise onion pattern was a very close second. It's from the shop Cats in the Cradle from Alton, New Hampshire.
Here's another little turquoise sweetie from Scavengenius. Actually, maybe this one would be my second choice.
Then I came across this vintage Arthur Wood and Sons chintz teapot made in England and available from Dads Teacups. This little Etsy shop from California is full of beautiful teacups and teapots.
Next is a vintage basket weave teapot with a hand-painted floral design from Holiday Farm Studio from upstate New York.
And here's a close-up of the pretty detailed painting.
This teapot brings back lots of memories because my Mother had one, or maybe still does. I'll have to check on that. It's an authentic cottageware teapot from Price Kensington, made in England, and available at Fab Vintage Estates.
Here's another Price Kensington teapot with delicate blue flowers that remind me of forget-me-nots and it is priced at only $8. It can be purchased at Shop on Sherman.
And what about this silver-plated teapot marked "New Amsterdam Silver Company" and dates back to the 1890's. Can you believe this well used and loved teapot is only $20?
