The collector's guide to selecting, displaying and enjoying new and vintage teapots, mainly written for newcomers to teapot collecting. This book is illustrated with more than 200 examples from around the world, plus their associated milk jugs and sugar bowls, trays, stands, and tiles.
Connoisseurs collect unusual shaped teapots made in ancient China and medieval Japan, classics by Meissen or Wedgwood, or Staffordshire cottagepots. Enthusiasts collect new, affordable, fantasy teapots shaped like storybook or film characters, animals or even food. There are favourite royal commemorative teapots, and the famous Hall China Doughnut, a Georgian silver tea kettle, and a Victorian children's tea service. The largest is a Russian samovar, and the smallest a doll's teapot just one and a half inches high. Detailed coverage is given of figural, floral, china, porcelain, pottery, souvenir, metal and miniature teapots.
