It’s now being called the world’s most expensive teapot! And what a find! An unidentified bargain hunter paid $20 for a cracked teapot at that and it just sold at auction for a whopping $820,000 !!!
The teapot has a local tie too, made in South Carolina before the Revolutionary War. A London dealer purchased the pot on behalf of the Met Museum of Art in New York.
Among the decorations is one of South Carolina’s famous palmetto trees.
