Vintage Heatmaster Teapots are collectible teapots produced by the British company Heatmaster.

Brief History and Description

Heatmaster was a maker of English insulated pottery and tableware. Mostly functional around the mid-20th century, the company worked primarily in the Art-Deco style, with particular popularity in the 1930s, 1940s and 1950s.

Heatmaster products were made in porcelain, with a chrome shell to the outside. This helped the items to contain heat, and made them very popular with contemporary consumers.

They have subsequently found a new life as collectables.

Guide For Collectors

Vintage Heatmaster teapots have appeared at mainstream and specialist auction houses, though due to their rarity, this has not been a frequent occurance.

Vintage Heatmaster teapots more frequently appear at online auction websites such as eBay, where they can be found for low prices. If purchasing online, prospective collectors are advised to carefully assess the condition and age of a particular piece before bidding, so as to avoid disappointment.

Further information on the creation and history of these pieces can be found online, with many websites including high quality images which could prove highly beneficial to collectors seeking to find or correctly identify the relevant pieces.
