This single serve teapot by Hampshire Pottery likely dates to c1910. It measures 3.75" high by 6" across by 4.75" in diameter. Hampshire pottery produced a whole line of souvenir pots, including this sweet single serve teapot. It bears a transfer image of the 'Oldest House, Edgartown, Mass', which is the Vincent House. The teapot is glazed in a basic ivory glaze and blushed with colors in green and brown tones. This teapot has a button lid. It is well marked 'Hampshire' on its base. It is in original condition, with some generalized factory crazing, which is amazing given its age of more than 100-years young. The Vincent House Museum, 99A Main St., is considered the oldest house on Martha's Vineyard. The 1672 residence, moved from its original site in 1977, contains original woodwork, brickwork, glass and hardware. The house's furnishings depict architecture and life on the island throughout the last 4 centuries. Docents conduct tours of the museum and other historic structures.
