"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"
