James Sadler was founded in 1882, and is one of the leading manufacturers of teapots in the UK. It all began with James Sadler, who built a factor in Burslem at the heart of the ceramic industry in Stoke-on-Trent, and made a name for himself by making fine earthenware teapots. He soon became famous, and a James Sadler teapot became synonymous with quality and good taste.
The first teapots were made using a red clay with a dark brown glazed surface. The Rockingham Brown, or 'Brown Betty' as it is affectionately known, is still in production today using a more elegant, less utilitarian, white clay. From these beginnings, the company has flourished and grown to the size it is today.
It is an encouraging thought that the original James Sadler, whose great-grandson is the current chairman, would have approved of the diversity and design of the range today. His vision and commitment to understanding what the customer really wanted is the foundation on which the company was built, and is our philosophy today. The rapid growth of the ceramic industry in the nineteenth century brought prosperity to Staffordshire, and the world passion for English pottery in the middle of this century, meant that James Sadler products very quickly became world famous. You can find our ranges on sale in over 100 countries around the world, from the USA to Australia, and from Russia to Brazil!
