Silver Teapot

The Teapot
The Teapot

This teapot was originally owned by my Great-Grandmother. The teapot was originally from New Haven, Connecticut. In my family it shows how anyone by being a kind person can befriend anyone else. It also shows how the country struck together during the first World War. It was received as a gift from a friend that my Great-Grandmother met on a train. The friend came from a wealthy family whose family quickly became close friends with mine despite the class difference. It is silver that was made with EPNS (Electro Plated Nickel Silver). My Great-Grandmother passed it down to my Grandfather who then gave it to my mom. I most think about it during Christmas because it is a sign of friendship.

Place(s): Connecticut
Year: 1814
