Teapot & mould, made at Prestonpans, East Lothian

This earthenware miniature teapot, pictured here with its plaster mould, was made by Belfield and Co. of Prestonpans in East Lothian. Both the teapot and the mould date from around the 1880s.

The brown glazed teapot has a spherical body with ribbed panels and a slightly domed lid. Belfields were well known for full-size teapots, which were known as 'Broon Coos'.

Good supplies of coal and clay and easy transport by sea meant that the south side of the Firth of Forth was an ideal location for potteries to develop. Small-scale works existed there from the 17th century and larger factories developed from around 1750
