There’s a Revolution In Your Teapot

The recently revamped British Galleries at The Metropolitan Museum of Art provide a fresh perspective on British decorative arts, design, and sculpture created between 1500 and 1900, by focusing on Britain's bold, entrepreneurial spirit and complex history. This new narrative is evident in a gallery devoted to “Tea, Trade, and Empire,” which explores the period’s commercial prosperity with a dazzling display of 100 English teapots, while also examining the exploitation of both human and natural resources that accompanied such abundance.
