This teapot is one that has become very special to me! My sister, Paula, gave it to me when they were cleaning out her mother in law’s house. It is a pretty one and pretty common style for that time period—-the brown with the bright colored paint is a typical type to be found in the 60’s and 70’s. I love it and I love that I knew the woman who used it to make many pots of tea. Thank you Dorothy Archdeacon and thank you, Paula!!! I love it!
