Little teapot.

World's Largest Teapot

The big teapot is doing well. The adjacent structure is either the world's largest creamer or the world's second largest teapot. Behind the creamer/teapot is a house with a terraced lawn formerly occupied by the owner of Rock Springs Park, which was at the current teapot/Rt. 30 site. The Sunoco convenience store across the street has a thin stack of postcards available.

You can't park there; you walk across the roadway to actually seethe teapot. It is very well kept up. You can't miss it in the little part of land off of Carolina Road and US 30. The owners of the gas station across the way were very nice and let us park there to observe the teapot and take pics. They seemed to enjoy our enthusiasm and never rushed us.

World's Largest Teapot

A very unique attraction! We stopped during the "McDermott Three States Tour" by the Pittsburgh Major Taylor Cycling Club. It was one of the highlights of the ride, which in 2016 was attended by riders from as far away as California. We stopped in 2015 as well, while the Teapot was being renovated, so it was great to see it again this year, fully restored.

World's Largest Teapot

It's much plainer than it used to be; it no longer says it's the World's Largest Teapot. Some other teapot must've claimed that title. This one seems to have lost its handle, too. It was a bit disappointing.

[Lucy Pfeffa, 06/02/2015]

The teapot is being renovated at the moment -- thoroughly repaired and repainted -- in preparation for Teapot Day on August 8, 2015.
