The Brown Betty Teapot
The most famous teapot on earth is the Brown Betty. It has a nice round shape, it is dark colored so it does not show tea stains, it is very friendly. I was over at Alan's house, and they had one, which is probably why he asked me once if I made brown mugs (I could...but I don't usually choose to).
Anyway, I like a nice fat, round teapot too.
This webpage and link features the original teapot and you can buy one. You don't want to buy one, but it has what I would call some mis-information. It says they are hand-made. They are not hand-made. They are mold-made in a factory, with people's hands pouring the mold and hand finishing the piece.
