We have just received a shipment of Brown Betty teapots. These are made at Adderley Ceramics in Stoke on Trent, the area known for the special clay used for decades in Brown Betty ware. Reading the history of Brown Bettys, it is interesting to note that several ceramic companies have created them over the years, with various levels of quality (or lack there of). Lately, it has become difficult to obtain any Brown Betty, but we are pleased to have found this supplier with a line of both brown and cobalt blue teapots. The quality is the best we have seen, and that has been verified on several other web sites dedicated to the art of British tea.
We have on hand 2, 4, 6 and 8 cup in both colours, as well as tea mugs and trivets. Various styles have been made over the years – these are based on designs used around WWII.
