Georgia Mae Gasperson was born in Asheville, North Carolina in 1905. She became the wife of Cecil W. Wright in 1923 and later the mother of 7 children. She enjoyed collecting teapots. When her children traveled abroad ( her 2 sons in the Merchant Marines and the Army and her 5 daughters married to military husbands) they would purchase unique teapots from all over the world to add to her collection. They were the perfect gift because she cherished them so. She would number and label the bottom of each to keep them organized. Through the years some of these labels have worn or come off of her collection of over 300 teapots. These beautiful pieces are in safe keeping as a memorial to a special mother and grandmother who blessed the lives of her family. As a tribute to Georgia Mae, we invite you to admire Grandmother’s Teapots.

I have a worldwide collection of teapots and work in the publishing industry. The best part of this book is its cover. The photos are poor quality, printed on flat paper instead of glossy and several photos are blurry. The collection itself it quite nice, but the poor presentation and the fact that none of the teapots are identified as to the maker and the country from which it came, was a major disappointment.The author obviously just took photos of the teapots and made no effort to research them in any way. I am returning my copy immediately.
This book contains teapots from all over the world in one collection belonging to one woman. She kept them in excellent condition over the 70 years spanning her collection. Nice job.
