A Paul Cardew Design Portmeirion Medium Sized Green Betty Miniature Teapot.
This wonderful, round green teapot, evocative of my Gran's old brown teapot, is delightful. It is fairly unusual to find one here in the UK, as they were predominately sent for sale in the USA. I'm glad it made the journey back home.
The watering can features the ever popular Shrubby Peony design.
Fully backstamped under the lid.
7 in (18 cm) to top of watering can
8.75 in (22.5 cm) spout to handle.
Paul Cardew Teapots
These wonderful novelty Portmeirion teapots burst into the world in 1993 when Portmeirion joined forces with Devon pottery company, Cardew Design, famous for their intricate miniature ware by famous designer Paul Cardew.
These cute teapots come in both small and large size, and are a marvel in their faithful replica of the Botanic Garden range of Portmeirion that grace each teapot. From the first 'China Stall' to 'Moving Day', 'Kitchen Sink' and 'Green Betty' which was made for the USA only, these humorous teapots are an absolute delight and are extremely collectable by both Portmeirion fans and teapot collectors alike.
