Post subject:  Limited-run of Erie teapots available from ELDCPS

Recently, a china Erie teapot appeared on Ebay, manufactured by Walker China about 1956. We do not know how many of these teapots were made but it would appear to have been a very small production run. Based on photos and personal recollections, it appears these teapots were no longer in service by the early 1960s. (The Walker teapot we saw was sold for over $800!)

Walker China no longer exists, so the ELDCPS met with Hall China to discuss reproducing this unique piece. Curiously, it seems that the Walker design was a "knockoff" of a standard Hall pattern!

So, ELDCPS is delighted to offer reproductions of these unique Erie teapots. Please visit our website for pricing, further ordering infomation and images:
