I found this lovely Sadler teapot at Affordables on First in Mason City. I love going in their store because they always have teapots. I have found several here to add to my collection as you might remember reading about them here and here and here.
Today’s teapot is a lovely green with an interior that boasts a natural clay like color.
The gold design on the outside and handle and spout make this a lovely piece.It’s always wonderful when I make a good buy and on the day I bought this one I think it might have even been on sale if my memory serves me correctly. They often have special sales and if you hit it on a half price “green sticker” day a customer can really hit the jackpot.
My experience…convinced me that tea was better than brandy, and during the last six months in Afica I took no brandy, even when sick taking tea instead. Theodore Roosevelt (1858-1919) Letter, 1912

And just how many boxes will be labeled “Tea Pots”???????!!!!!!!!! LOL!
A billion and two!
Kinda what I thought!!!!!!!!
Fortunately I do not have to pack them all myself. Whew.
I only have a couple of teapots but I always wished I’d bought one in England. This one looks so especially English. And what a great deal you got!
The ones in England are so beautiful! I WILL make a trip there someday and buy one in person! I will!
Ah, my favorite color, green.
Yep. It is indeed!
Sadler teapots are the best and the clay inside results in excellent tasting tea. Love Teddy Roosevelt’s quote.
They really are wonderful pots, aren’t they? Glad you liked the quote.
I love Sadler!! That’s my grandma’s maiden name, and sometimes when I drink tea from my own Sadler china, I like to pretend I am the sole heiress to the great tea fortune. LOL
I think that is a perfect assumption to make! Cheers!
I like the interior! Don’t see that often.
I am glad that I do not have to pack your tea pots.
Haha. You spent enough years packing up houses to move, didn’t you?
I was thinking the same thing. How many boxes will be teapots and how do you wrap all of them?! Ha!
And that is the beauty of having a company pay for your packing and moving! 🙂 #spoiled
Aha we had that once. Well not the packing part but the moving part and it was wonderful.
This is certainly a regal looking pot with all its gold trim!
Love your teapots, always so colorful!
Thanks so much for finding me again! I appreciate your kind comments !
It was not easy to find you! Glad I did though!
When I did the blog change over to WordPress.org I lost a bunch of people along the way despite my best attempts to stay connected. Thank you for finding me again! I value your input and love to check out your blog as well. 🙂
Is the change worth it? I have been thinking of doing it myself for Segmation but I didn’t know if it was worth loosing followers. >> http://www.segmation.wordpress.com
