Brewing up a storm: America’s first china teapot unearthed for £15

A hitherto unrecorded teapot attributed to a pioneering American porcelain factory has surfaced in the UK.

The vessel, only the sixth piece known from the John Bartlam factory in Cain Hoy, South Carolina, will carry an estimate of £10,000-20,000 at Woolley & Wallis on February 20.

Bartlam’s kilns operating on the Wando river c.1765-70 are now recognised as the first to produce porcelain in America, preceding by about five years the better-known Bonnin and Morris factory in Philadelphia.
