Teapot Collection   (442 thru 514)                                          Group 4 of 4

The permanent exhibition on display in Trenton is recognized at the World's Largest Collection of Porcelain Veilleuse-Theieres. The teapots on display are dated from 1750 to 1860.

In 1955, Dr. Freed began donated 525 teapots to the City of Trenton. The collection was given over a period of years. The teapots were initially on display in the lobby of the Peabody High School Auditorium. However, when a new Municipal Building was constructed, Dr. Freed has a special display case built to permanently house the treasures in the city council chambers. Now over 3,000 visitors annually come to the area to view the collection.

On these pages are 160 of the 525 that was selected to display on the web-site.  The pictures are large enough to get a good idea of their beauty but it not like seeing them up close in the display case in the Municipal Building.  If you get a chance to come to Trenton, please take the time to visit the World's Largest Collection of Porcelain Veilleuse-Theieres.  The admission is free to see the collection.

There is a catalog that shows all 525 teapots with description as shown on these pages.  The sequence of the teapots displayed on the web-site is by the assigned number of the teapot.
