Perhaps this is obvious but, remember that the English have not had tea
that long. Less than 500 years, most likely a lot less! You might be
looking for something that does not exist.

No, by early I meant after circumnavigation and the height of tea
trade through Dutch impoters. Early English teapots would be around
I have been finding lots on the web. Also there are a variety of

brewed in cups. Europeans designed teapots based on Chinese wine ewer
shapes. All very interesting.

I hope this is not redundant information. Type in teapot and see what you can get. I was at Stoke-on-Trent last year and it was a fruitful research trip. The oatcake was delicious.
