Hi, does anyone know how popular it was back in the 1800s and early 1900s for tea pots to be made in the oriental style (gold trims and intricate oriental designs) in England? I have one that was made in England but has an oriental look and design. When you first see it you would think it was probably made in China or Japan but at the bottom it has the Englsh stamp of where it was made. I'm curious about the history of that and how popular it was.
Thank you DJ361 for the tea pot historical background. I found it interesting. I was surprised to read that the Netherlands continue to be leading tea drinkers. I did not know this. Your information helped to explain a little about my own tea pot. I did notice that my English made oriental tea pot is more sturdier than one of my other oriental tea pots originally made in the Orient. The one made in the Orient is so thin and delicate, I have to always handle it with extreme care.
