CHESTER, W.Va. (AP) - A creamer has returned to the World’s Largest Teapot attraction in West Virginia’s Northern Panhandle.

The East Liverpool Review (https://bit.ly/1OrhWeZ ) reports that volunteer contractors installed the creamer on a stone pedestal next to the teapot in Chester last week. The creamer was built about 40 years ago and later was put into storage. It most recently was on display in the Chester Municipal Building.

The 14-foot-tall teapot started off in the early 1900s as a wooden barrel used to advertise Hires Root Beer. Chester resident William Devon bought the barrel in 1938, added a tin, teapot-shaped exterior and hired teenagers to sell concessions and souvenirs from it.

Chester plans to hold its first World’s Largest Teapot Day on Aug. 8 to celebrate the renovation’s completion.
