I could not resist this porcelain tea-pot that I saw in a Vinnies store two weeks ago. I like the potting of the piece and the handle, the spout and the decoration of the nude female figure is cute. She's admiring a new piece of glass that I've put next to her on my display cupboard at the moment. The woman who sold it to me mentioned that it had been brought in by a woman whose husband hated it. One man's trash .....

I have not yet been able to find out anything about this Mystery Australian (?) Potter Ginni Jones.

That handle mounting reminds me of the teapots of Christopher Dresser for Linthorpe, the silver plated and copper/bronze ones with in the late nineteenth century. His wilting, limp-wristed aesthete as a teapot for Royal Worcester, 1881 is a classic.

Fantasy teapots these days are a phenomenon in themselves:

I know in the US there will be Big Fish, Small Pot V: Fifth international Small Teapot Show and Competition, Pomona, California.

and

Lark Crafts: 500 Teapots, Asheville, NC, USA

In Australia there'll be in Melbourne the Studio @ Flinders Gallery 8th Annual Easter Teapot Exhibition, Flinders, VIC.
