What does "and but" mean when are together? For example: My teapot was bought at Victoria Falls, and but the bag had been refilled with down in San Francisco. And what is "refilled with down" in Spanish? = rellenado con plumón?

Hello María, I have never saw ''and but'' together I am sure it is a mistake. You can use one or the other to complete the sentence but not both together. Your translation is perfect.

Thanks for reply. This sentence is from my English homework, but it is taken from a book: Travels with Jupiter of Ted Simons.

"And but" doesn't make sense here. Also, the sentence doesn't make any sense. First, it speaks of a teapot, then of a bag "refilled with down", which doesn't really make sense, either. What bag? Where did you find this sentence?
