Modern teapots are derived from the ancient kettles and pots that were a part of Chinese culture and life for thousands of years. Originally they would have been made from metals such as bronze. Later, as tea began to be shipped to Europe, porcelain teapots became very popular. This change in materials was also due to the fact that porcelain was highly durable in wet conditions and was thus easier to transport by ship without undue damage.

Teapots, especially those made from porcelain, were very desirable in Europe. This was because the material was not made in European nations at that time. It wasn’t until the aptly named William Cookworthy first discovered a way to make porcelain in 1765, that the material became widespread. Naturally, the teapot designs tended to mirror those of the old Chinese styles.
