James Sadler became a household name after crafting fine earthenware and high-quality teapots, and his company eventually became one of the top manufacturers of teapots in the UK.
The James Sadler "Rockingham Brown" or "Brown Betty" teapot is considered to be the most valuable and rare among collectors.
Why is the Brown Betty teapot so popular? The British believe that the Brown Betty teapot makes the best pot of tea in the world. For one, the red clay used has better heat retention. Secondly, the shape of the teapot allows the tea leaves to swirl around inside the teapot whenever hot water is gently added.
NOTE: Not intended for use on a stove top or in a microwave
Why is it called a Brown Betty? Well…it is brown, thanks to a Rockingham Glaze. But why “Betty”? In the 1800’s no self-respecting house in England was run without at least one servant. As “Elizabeth” was a very popular name at that time, odds were that you had a servant named Elizabeth. And Elizabeth – shortened to Betty – would have served the tea. Some believe that the special brown teapot came to be known as a “Betty” or a “Brown Betty“. But no one knows for sure.
