"Wesley Wedgwood" Teapot


This teapot is a nineteenth century reproduction of the famous
teapot presented to John Wesley by Josiah Wedgwood in 1761.
The original teapot is preserved in Wesley's house on Chapel Road,
London. Rev. John Cennick wrote the inscribed "Wesley Graces".
The teapot's design is said to have been copied from Wedgwood's
wife's apron and is called "Calico" or "Wesley Wedgwood".
The inscription reads...
"We thank thee Lord for this our food
But more because of Jesus blood
Let manna to our Souls be given
The bread of Life sent down from Heaven

Be present at our Table Lord
Be here and everywhere ador'd
These creatures blefs & grant that we
May feast in Paradice with thee"

We just purchased this teapot from an antique dealer here in North Fort Myers Florida.

Can you tell us anything more about this teapot, the story behind it, or if you know of a teaset that goes with it.

We would love to find the rest of the tea set in the same pattern.

We just buried my mom's cremated remains in this delightful teapot! She'd be so pleased because the teapot sat on our kitchen table for 40 years and we thought of the quotes as our blessings, viewed every day at mealtime.

We hadn't been able to use the teapot most of those 40 years, because long ago my dad and my sister had each unintentially broken the spout a few times. It was glued together nicely but could never be used for it's intended purpose of hot tea.

This teapot sat with it's matching plate, sugar, and creamer dishes in front of dear mom for all those years as she ate her meals at the kitchen table. She would (and perhaps is) pleased that we chose this as her urn. We added an azalea bloom (from a plant given to us when dad passed away and blooming this spring)and we included a small broach with her monogram (a gift to her from dad long ago) and tucked her in with our love, as our young nephew kindly recited the Wesley Wedgwood teapot's familiar blessings.
