Albert Edward Jones was born in 1878 into a family of
of craftsmen and the care and attention given to each piece is evident in his work especially the earlier work.
He worked as a guildsman at the Birmingham Guild of Handicraft which enabled him to work with many leading artists of the Arts and Crafts movement. Their influence shaped much of his early work which is evident in this teapot.
