"British Teapots" Cotton Kitchen / Tea Towel.

A delightful kitchen accessory, this 100% cotton tea towel from the Metropolitan Museum of Art depicts a group of vividly colored and shaped 18th-century teapots. Representing actual stoneware teapots in The Met collection, the fanciful pattern evokes hand-drawn illustrations.

In 18th-century Britain, a vogue for tea-drinking and expanding global trade networks spurred a fashion for imported Chinese porcelain. British firms responded to this demand by developing their own ceramic tea wares, with production clustering in such pottery-making centers as Staffordshire.

This charming tea towel reflects this influential English trend.
