The "No Stamp Act" porcelain teapot has been adapted from an original teapot held in The Colonial Williamsburg Foundation collections. This teapot has a cream body, red lettering and garlands like the original. The spout and handle are in the shape of vines, reflecting the 18th-century interest in nature. A perfect conversation piece to enjoy with guests and a fun educational tool too! Serve a history lesson with a side of cookies and you'll be sure have a captive audience. Our No Stamp Act teapot makes a great gift, especially when paired with one of our teas and mugs.

For colonists chafing under imperial rule, The Stamp Act was the last straw. The original teapot that inspired ours was produced for the American market by British manufacturers to commemorate the repeal of the act in March of 1766. Take a deep dive into the history of The Stamp Act on the Colonial Williamsburg website and visit our digital collections to see the original teapot that inspired our adaptation.

The high reproduction standards of Colonial Williamsburg were evident in this teapot. As a living historian, this piece will be used to teach colonial history in presentations. Thank you to the Foundation for offering this item.
This teapot will add to our presentation and tea sampling.
I love this little teapot!!! Perfect for a couple cups of tea in the afternoon. I had been looking for a No Stamp Act regular sized tea pot ever since I saw the little Christmas ornament ones!!! So glad to have a full-sized one!!!!
