Metropolitan Museum of Art, British Teapots Die Cut Notecards
Ideal for writing to family and friends, these fanciful notecards illustrate a group of vividly colored and shaped teapots in The Met Collection.
About this Notecard
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.
These notecards reflect this influential English trend.
