Dear Dave and Karen, I have in my possession a beautiful brownish ribbed teapot that my ninety two year old grandmother had passed down to me. She recalls receiving it as a wedding gift from her mother in law in 1938. As far as she can remember it had already been in the family for a few years. I cherish the teapot being that my grandmother has handed it over to my care. I do not wish to sell this beauty but only to inquire about it's origin and possible value. If there might be any information regarding the China Co., family history, European ties and whatever, I am greatly interested. My precious grandmother is still with us and has a great curiosty regarding this teapot. Ironically, she never drank tea, but her granddaughter only drinks tea! Thank you and God Bless!!! Denise T.H.
