Leeds teapot 18800-20 V and A

Teapots this week, partly because having tea out of a teapot is so soothing and Forsterian and indeed Whipple-ish, and English in a good way, and partly to celebrate The Decorative Arts Society which Persephone Books has admired for years and has now officially joined. This is a Leeds teapot at the V and A (in the marvellous ceramics gallery at the top of the building), it’s apparently 1800-1820 but looks more 1930.
