This leathercraft picture by Chuck Brock commemorates a seminal act in American history: the Boston Tea Party. The American colonists are disguised as Native Americans, dumping tea into the harbor from the British ship’s deck. The scene is framed with a decorative border of foliage.

The Boston Tea Party, like Alice in Wonderland, is a popular subject in the Kamm Teapot Collection.
