These teapots were very popular in the West with a wealthy audience eager for all things exotic and were first popularised in Britain by William, 1st Earl of Cadogan (1675 – 1726). Conceived to delight and amuse, through being filled from the base, they figured in important collections and were used to entertain guests. Their origins though are much earlier having been used domestically in China and across the Sino-Korean peninsula from the late Ming Period. It is also more likely they were originally designed to be used as waterpots, as from a practical point of view cleaning the interior would have been difficult.
