Collector Augustus Franks used a significant portion of his fortune to purchase tea sets and individual items: cups, saucers, and teapots. He acquired many rarities due to his friendship with other collectors, and also believed that the passion for purchasing rare items was in his blood. Once he even wrote that collecting is a hereditary disease, which in his case is incurable.

A significant part of the teapots are made in China. The items were made at different times and in different regions of the country: in Jingdezhen (XVIII century), Yixing (early XVIII century) and other places. There is also English porcelain, and products produced in Meissen. We offer you to enjoy the beauty of this antique tableware.
