    It has been suggested that this teapot is the only one of its kind and that the pattern was not repeated on other teapots or other pieces to form a tea set. Known as the 'J.S.Goddard Teapot', it was purchased from the antique dealer Chadwick, residing in Newcastle, Staffordshire in 1947.
    The teapot was loaned to the New Hall Pottery Co, Ltd., in 1948 in order that seven copies could be made. The intention was to offer them for acceptance to the Victoria & Albert Museum, London, the Museum of Stoke-On-Trent, and Collectors of New Hall Porcelain.
    The quality of technique and brushwork led George Eyre Stringer to propose that the work may be by a French hand.
