A Vintage American-Made Teapot


There is always room in my house for another teapot. 
This pretty 6-cup teapot is marked Lamberton Ivory China made in America "Doris". 
Notice the flat design on the top of the handle?  It's just perfect for resting your thumb, therefore, making it easier to carry a full pot of tea.  
Through online research, I learned Lamberton Ivory China is restaurant-quality dinnerware made by the Sterling China Company of East Liverpool and Wellsville, Ohio.  
"Doris" was one of several Lamberton patterns.

Very pretty! I love teapots that have those "thumb rests" too. I have spilt many a teapot. ;)

What a lovely piece, and how unusual to find one this pretty that is American made and not all heavy and ceramic looking!

That is a lovely American made teapot and I like the thumb rest too. The floral pattern is very pretty.

Very pretty. I noticed the way the lid was shaped and embellished. Very nice.
