See letter 31 August 1998 from Sir C. Cockerell (rel doc files). "It belonged to an Englishwoman who spent most of her life in the States, and she and the teapot and various other delightful things came to reside in a house in Slone Street [London*]...Aunt Nell...was married to a Colonel, but he died, and after a number of years she died also, and my Father inherited the contents of her house. He asked me what I would like, and I said I would like the teapot."
