World renowned and collected ceramic artist, Paul Cardew, designed this ultra-adorable homage to American animation's greatest fashionista, Betty Boop. With her tilted head, pouty mouth and those large eyes, this teapot is certainly an eye-catcher.
As a thoughtful gift for a Betty Boop lover or as an amusing standout to any teapot collection, this Cardew Collectible is all about bringing out a smile.

Please note: This is the rare large teapot and not the smaller sized one generally offered online. It holds 46 fluid ounces to the rim.
Origin: England; 2000; pre-owned
Dimensions: 7 1/8"H x 8 3/4"W
Condition: Very Good. Two manufacturing issues are seen: a small half-inch pinch (line) beneath the black glaze, and an area behind the right shoulder where the glaze has a light drip area not smoothed out. Two very, very faint pencil-like smudges are also seen to her face cheeks (see last photos).
There are no chips, cracks, stains, or crazing. The interior is clean and free of any stains or wear.
