For my first teapot and tea things Tuesday, I’d like to show you a teapot that belonged to my Mom. She received it as a gift from her older sister Betty around 1950. I carried this beauty home by airplane after Mom insisted that I take it during one of our last visits together and I treasure it.
It was made by Arthur Wood in England. It is such a pretty pink, white and gold color.
Since it is marked Arthur Wood it was probably made sometime between 1904-1928. I have read that the name changed to Arthur Wood & Sons in 1928. It looks like the pattern is 5401 or Athans, but I have not been able to find any information.
The A. T. Finney & Sons company used Duchess in many marks from 1947-1960.
