Teapot Love

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?
It's for sale at Crow and Fig from St. Leonard, Maryland.





And what about these earrings from CM Vision Jewelry?  Too cute.
 



 
I do have one teapot I found at Scott's last month.
 



 
I think it needs a friend ~ don't you?
I may just have to do some online shopping, but which one do I pick when I want them all?

Love them all Cindy.

You would have a heart attack if you knew how many teapots I have - or if you saw my XLG Tupperware container full of tea leaves.

I tell ya, you may like tea once you come share with me - but I will have a diet soda at the ready just in case!

Beautiful post - my fav thing is tea china!

You need to post at Tea Time Tuesday and Cuppa Tea Tuesday - you can find the links and a giveaway on my blog today.

Hugs.

Goodness knows I love teapots and teacups and saucers. I just think we need to have a tea party and have all kinds of tea- surely there is one that you will fall in love with!

Had such a busy day at store today- some were customers but it seemed like many just needed someone to pour their hearts out too. Amazing how God just stills the store while we have God conversations! Great day though I am ready for bed already!!!

Well, I am a tea lover as well as a teapot/teacup lover! Your teapot and the chintz and forget-me-not pots are so cute!
I didn't care much for tea for many years and then I discovered herbal teas and now I enjoy them as much as coffee. Thank you for joining my tea party and have a wonderful week.

Blessings,
Sandi

I have the same teapot that you like from Hopscotch Memories only mine is green. I don't collect teapots but I found that one at a garage sale for $1.00 and thought it was so cute.

Hi Cindy,
fabulous post. This is a wonderful collection of tea pots. Alas the postal fee is very high to send such to Germany. Thanks for sharing.
Best greetings, Johanna
