Tea pots have come a long long way from being purely functional vessels.   I came across these by  British potter Tony Carter.  There is somthing very British and quaint about these teapots which I find charming.

Maybe its the naivity of the faces that I find so cute?

Maybe it’s nostalgia for uniforms that offer service?  Service has changed and so have the uniforms….

This image and uniform is still going strong though.  Maybe it’s the continuity of tradition that draws me.  These designs are all full of charm anyway!
