Several months ago we found a teapot made by Walker China for the Erie in the Starrucca pattern. The existence of this piece was previously unknown. The date code indicates it was made in 1956. Before finding this teapot, we assumed that the Erie exclusively used silver teapots. We do not know how many of these teapots were made but it would appear tohave been a very small production run. Based on photos and personalrecollections, it appears these teapots were no longer in service by the early 1960s. The Walker teapot we saw was recently sold for over $800!

When we first saw this teapot we immediately thought about reproducing it to go with our other Starrucca reproductions. Since Walker China was no longer in business, we asked Rich Luckin of China Concepts. He put us in contact with the Hall China Company. Hall China is located in East Liverpool, Ohio and was founded in 1903. While they make most standard china pieces, they are world-famous for their pitchers and especially their teapots. Hall China has made many different teapots for railroad dining service over the years. Hall agreed to make a limited-edition reproduction of the Walker teapot. They have a teapot style called “Buffet” that has almost an identical shape to the Walker piece.

This will be a limited production run so please place your order now.
