Inspired by The Connoisseur's Guide to Christie's Collectible Teapots, this collection of six famous teapots is for collectors with an appreciation of history.

In recognition of the Anglo-Sino nature of our enamel programme, the first three teapots are minature reproductions of Chinese teapots used in the Royal Household of The Forbidden City in Beijing. As befitted a drink that was made from precious leaves, then drunk in tiny bowls, teapots tended to be smaller than those used today.

To complete the collection are three famous teapots selected by Christie for their unique representation of teapots throughout the 18th Century.

Wemyss Ware EN580
Made by Robert Heron and Sons at Fife in Scotland, the decoration of this piece was by Karl Nekola, of Bohemia, who trained many local men. Wemyss Ware sold extremely well, especially in London, where its 'folksy' look became fashionable with the upper classes. This particular teapot, dating from c.1900, is painted in a fairly unusual manner, with bold brush strokes. Pieces of Wemyss Ware decorated with flowers or fruits are most collectable.

Sèvres hard paste EN585
In 1769 the famous French Sèvres factory was granted the exclusive right to produce the first hard paste porcelain in France. Since much of the early Sèvres porcelain was made for Royal use, it was known as Royal Porcelain and a crown was added to the usual marks. This teapot is in the Neoclassical style, which replaced the Rococo in the mid-18th century.

Spode Caneware EN590
This Chinese style teapot, dating from c.1790, was made in caneware and is enriched with blue and white enamels. Josiah Spode, a notable Staffordshire potter established his famous English factory in c.1770. Spode was best known for inventing porcelain that contained bone ash, the world famous bone china.
