My Roses Teapot
The teapot is an original Chatsford with a rosebud design made by Sadler, an English maker of fine tea sets. James Sadler and Sons Ltd was a pottery manufacturer originally founded in 1882 by James Sadler in Burslem, Stoke-on-Trent, United Kingdom. In recent years, the company went into receivership and is now a part of Churchill China. My teapot is vintage, making it part of what was manufactured by the original Sadler company. I purchased sweet teapot on Ebay from a seller in the United Kingdom. This is the only teapot in my collection that I have ordered on eBay. But, I fell in love with the scattered print of roses and the shape and took the risk of an international transaction and shipping.
