Designed by Alexandria Evans of North No. 4, this modern version of the Edenton Teapot is the first piece in the line of Circa 1774 (copyrighted) to be sold only at North No. 4. (More pieces of Circa 1774 to be added in 2023, incorporated in various products.) The teapot represents the 51 women who, on October 25, 1774, resolved to stop buying English imports in support of the actions and resolutions of the First Provincial Congress.

The women drew up resolves, declaring their intention to boycott English tea and English cloth, a momentous step for colonists, who relied on tea and other British goods. The women signed and mailed the document to England and the action has since became known as the Edenton Tea Party. One of the first public political acts by women in America.

Original House of Morgan design that is Hand Cast in North Carolina. Made to be shiny but will grey naturally with age. You may restore the shine by polishing with Brasso or any metal polish that lists Pewter on the container. You may also restore the shine by polishing with a super-sheen polishing cloth or jeweler's cloth.
