family heirloom unmarked teapot with ceramic handle
This teapot has been in my family since the late 1800's. It was recently passed down to me from an aunt who has no daughters (as this is an item passed down to the women). I don't know its origin other than one of the first owners that I'm aware of live in Birmingham England in the early 1900's. The marking seem to be nondescript so any online research had been unsuccessful. The Aunt that I recieved it from had no idea of its history either so I'm at a loss of where to go next.
I am interested in the origin as, when I pass it down to my daughters or grand daughter I will be able to give them the story of the piece that goes along with it.
