In the second half of the nineteenth century, porcelain became easy to obtain in Canada, and its use quickly became widespread. French porcelain, such as this teapot (believed to have been made in the Haviland workshop), was available at reasonable prices and established a foothold in the import trade. However, British potters remained the principal suppliers to the new Dominion.
