Teapots such as this were made for sale to the American market soon after the 1766 repeal of the hated Stamp Act, passed by the British Parliament on March 22, 1765. The Stamp Act required American colonists to pay a tax on all printed materials—from documents to playing cards.
This particular sgraffito design is handcrafted in Connecticut out of redware clay. This 1qt teapot is ready to use and is sure to be a conversation piece in any home.
Please keep in mind that these are handcrafted and there are some slight variations from piece to piece.
