About Arthur Wood

A warm cup of tea brewed in a china teapot is one of life’s little delights. If that teapot is from the manufacturer Arthur Wood, a pleasant experience becomes layered with additional meaning and steeped in history more than 250 years in the making. The Wood family began making pottery in England two and a half centuries ago. Their descendant, Arthur, started manufacturing home goods under the Arthur Wood name in 1884, becoming particularly well known for tea settings. An Arthur Wood teapot typically features decorative floral scenes in a number of patterns. Teapots are sometimes matched with an Arthur Wood cup or set of cups as part of a complete tea setting. For collectors without a fondness for tea, additional pieces like mugs, pitchers, and steins are available, as are children’s tea sets. The reliable sellers on eBay offer a number of quality Arthur Wood pieces in all forms to give your teatime personality and added significance.
