The ubiquitous Brown Betty teapots date back to the 1700s; one of the most popular pieces from the Staffordshire pottery industry, at their peak in 1926 over half a million were made every week!
Cauldon Ceramics is the last remaining manufacturer of the original Brown Betty teapot. Working with them, ceramicist Ian McIntyre has re-engineered this British icon, keeping its classic good looks and Rockingham glaze but adding modern useful features including:
- Non drip spout
- Removable infuser for loose leaf tea
- Locking lid
- Stain free glaze
It's so good we had to get one for the Manchester Art Gallery Collection, making this an official work of art!
