There’s a whole lot of serious teapot here!   This teapot looks like it doubles up as a kettle as well.  It;s got a bit of a billie can feel to it: waltzing Matilda anyone?

Absolutely LOVE this Boston Tea Party pot!  (what a swell party that WAS….) It looks like it’s been cobbled together from found objects.  The nuts and bolts are such an original touch and perfectly in keeping with the design.
