This is the original version of the Carltonware Lustre Pottery teapot by Roger Mitchell made in the early 1980's. It is regarded as very rare, and in my long experience is indeed that. This particular teapot is the one that was in the Bramah collection and is illustrated in his book on page 177 (#438). NOW OFFERED AT 220 PREVIOUSLY THIS POT WAS SOLD FOR 375..LAST ONE

It is one of my all time favourites, and displays the best in novelty teapot design: every aspect of the teapot represented by two clowns, one upon the other, forming a sculptural design in it's own right, whilst retaining all the necessary elements required for a functioning teapot...masterly.
