British teapot with Québec landscapes and a beaver.

Beginning in the mid 18th century, English ceramics progressively replaced the tin plates in homes across the colony. Québec merchant Francis T. Thomas promoted dinnerware sets imported from Scotland and decorated with Québec landscapes that became very popular as of 1870. The sets included a tea set—a typically British addition.
