Traditional teapots - made in England

by Dian Elvin
(Oxfordshire)

The loss of manufacturing in the UK worries me immensely. I was looking for a traditional teapot and found exactly what I wanted. Unfortunately it was stocked in the USA and could not be exported. Made in England, not in China, it is an 8-cup Brown Betty Staffordshire teapot, not expensive, but not available (correct me if I am wrong!) in the UK!

Hi Dian,
I have good news for you - and everyone else loving good solid teapots to brew their cuppa.

Made in England: Brown Betty Teapot Amazon UK now has a decent selection of Brown Betty Teapots to choose from.

Another retailer in the UK, who sells Brown Betty Teapots is Edward's China, are online, and also offer blue and white Cornishware, which I have a particular fondness for.

And finally, I also like teapots in Dexam's London Pottery range, though I could not swear that they're all made in England. They have a very traditional shape and come in a variety of colours and sizes.

I hope that you'll soon find what you're looking for. There's nothing nicer than a proper English afternoon tea!

Dexham Teapots

Just to let you know that Dexham London Pottery Teapots are made in China and are only designed in the UK. I know this as I have just received an answer to my question about country of manufacture from them.

Thanks, Jane! When I contacted them I was told that the ones with the "Made in England" tag were made here... but this was quite a few years ago, so - thanks so much for hightlighting this.

Brown Betty Teapots are made in England by Cauldon Ceramics in Staffordshire.

See their website, for information about all they do.

I am sure if you contact them they will let you know the retail outlets in the uk.
