Product description

During Queen Victoria's reign, tea became a symbol of Britain's greatest period of expansion and stability. Every home owned a teapot, even if it was a basic "Brown Betty". Tea was no longer a refined upper class beverage, but the basis of a whole meal. While Charleston dancers and many Victorian glamours have disappeared from the scene, the humble "Brown Betty" has remained a firm favorite. Its origins go back to the to the end of the 17th century and to the birth of the ceramic teapot. In 1700 a small unglazed teapot made of red clay from the Bradwell Woods area of Stoke on Trent was a luxury item costing 12 shillings. Our Brown Betty teapots are still made from the Terracotta as used by the Elder Brothers in 1695. their method of making was 'jollying' but in later years this became slip casting giving a smooth finish and even thickness. Rocking glaze complies with US FDA and California proposition 65. Succeeding generations of Englishmen have proved that the Brown Betty makes the best pot of tea in the world. The shape of the pot causes the tea leaves to be gently swirled around as the boiling water is added thus producing an exquisite infusion. The red terracotta clay with its Rockingham glaze coddles the brew and gives the perfect cup of tea. Hand wash only.

Comment on Making Home: Objets d’art (Part 2) by Chez @ Chez Moi

here have been a few highs and lows lately, a few changes too. This post has been sitting in draft form for nearly six weeks – I’ve just been either too busy or too distracted to finish it. Don’t get me wrong, busy is exciting, and rollercoasters remind me that I’m alive and still have much to learn, but it’s... Maybe I need a sleep in, a yoga class, or just to spend a bit more time writing here, in my creative space. Whatever it is, I am craving a weekend of quiet and slow, at home, doors closed, bowl of pasta and red wine in hand. One meaning of home is sanctuary, a place of comfort, rest and refuge. It’s an idea that we have sought to create in every place we’ve lived, but especially in this one. The warm and cosy interior of our apartment is like a blanket against the world, especially at night when the dim lighting wraps the darkness closely around. No matter how cold, noisy, and crowded it gets outside, home always feels like an escape (and yes, we should all be so lucky). Inside our apartment I have numerous small treasures collected over the last four years. Last year I featured many of these objects in a post (see here ), and although it’s a bit weird to quote myself, what I wrote then is still what I want to say: “a sense of home is [partly] created by the accumulation of beloved objects…these are...
