World renowned ceramic designer and master novelty teapot designer Paul Cardew takes on Royal Albert's best selling pattern and epitomizes cuteness with this large tea time delight. It is an incredible piece and Cardew's dedication to detail is evident and exciting.
Bright white earthenware and brushed gold serve as a backdrop to an beautiful 3D lid, a work of art by itself, blazing old country charm through an intricate miniature display which includes a teapot, teacup, fruit, and the Royal Albert press. The main body of the teapot represents a draped table cloth with a Cardew spin on Royal Albert fruit designs. A splendid hand made creation.
