Teapot Collecting Tips

When you have a passion for something, you usually find yourself collecting related items, so it's no surprise that many tea lovers are also teapot collectors. However, the sheer number of teapots is overwhelming and few people can identify more than a few of the many artisans and manufacturers that specialize in these marvelous containers. How can you discover whether your newest acquisition is a rare collectible teapot or an inexpensive dollar store item? Luckily, with a bit of research, it is possible to find out which teapots are highly collectible or to discover whether your pot is valuable. To find out more about teapots, you should:

  • Read books and magazines about tea and teapots. If you are collecting antique teapots, a value guide, such as Kovels' Antiques and Collectibles Price List , will give you an idea of the value of your collection. For someone just starting out, Teatime Magazine is a great way to discover new teapot artisans.
  • Explore the many wonderful teapots available at MightyLeaf.com to discover which of the different styles appeal to you. While some people feel that tea should only be brewed in a delicate Asian pot, others prefer a modern looking French press design.
