WASHINGTON - OCTOBER 14: The words "In God We Trust" are seen on U.S. currency October 14, 2004 in Washington, DC. Although the U.S. constitution prohibits an official state religion, references to God appear on American money, the U.S. Congress starts its daily session with a prayer, and the same U.S. Supreme Court that has consistently struck down organized prayer in public schools as unconstitutional opens its public sessions by asking for the blessings of God. The Supreme Court will soon use cases from Kentucky and Texas to consider the constitutionality of Ten Commandments displays on government property, addressing a church-state issue that has ignited controversy around the country.

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.
