A Vintage James Kent Teapot

Someone recently asked me how many teapots I have.  I'm not really sure.  Everytime I start counting my 100+ teapots, I become distracted by something such as, "this teapot would look better over there" or "I need to wash this tea set"  or "where in the world did I put that whichever teapot"  and off I go on a tangent  forgetting to finish my count.   

I suppose the real answer to the question of how many teapots I have is... "not enough!"   

This week I've been on on a teapot buying spree.  OK, just three teapots in one week.  That's not too many teapots to purchase in one week is it? 

The teapot in these photos is a  vintage James Kent Old Foley violets pattern teapot and was made in Staffordshire, England of "fine earthenware."  I purchased it for for a bargain price and I am so happy because  English-made teapots are my favorites!

Love your new addition Linda. Many of us have a cup and saucer with violets but it would be nice to have the teapot too.

You just can't beat those vintage ones! How do you store them all? :-) Well, I've seen your tea room, so I know how you store many of them!

That is a great teapot, and of course they're always prettier when they're bargains! ;)

A very pretty teapot. Now I don't purposely go searching them out, I can't imagine having that many in my house. Love your collection.
