  4. Ursula was not far from the truth; the tea pot resembles an eggplant.

    1. I am never far from the truth, Duta. To grab the truth, any truth, by its apron strings without strangling myself in the process is the art I am still trying to perfect.

      You'd make a good defense lawyer and/or optician (both of them tend to be bearers of bad news but do not let that dishearten you).

    2. @ DUTA (and possibly Ursula) - this is NOT a picture of the teapot in John's previous post. This is a completely different teapot!

    2. Please don't complicate things, Jinx. I believe Rachel's Burka girls won. A truly inspired entry - one John initially refused to give air space to. As I would have done. A bit of peace never going amiss.

      The irony being, and please take note, that everyone thought they were chiseled out of aubergines. Not so - courgettes.

      Purple greetings,
      U

  7. You could make it up, otherwise it would never have been made.

  10. I can see it on Antiques Roadshow:
    "As fine an example of Staffordshire weird ware as I have ever seen!! Circa 1916, in the neo-odd veggie style championed by the Trelawnyd flower show school."

  11. Who'd have thought a teapot could bring on so much chatter. It is a wonderful piece of china though and should be in my collection though i prefer chocolate sets better. Love your pot...haha

  12. Should have gone to Specsavers, that was so funny.

  13. With my huge current crop of Aubergines, that would sit very nicely in my kitchen.

  17. Now I have a childhood song stuck in my brain,
    "I'm a little tea pot short and stout,
    here is my handle, here is my spout."
    Very pretty piece

    1. Gosh, how do I say this without being bitchy...she is someone who takes great delight in apparently taunting the comments page on any given day. I always get the feeling that she is tut tutting her way around the comments trying to bestow her virtue on the "idiot" commentator of the day. I can't decide if she is just a bitch or someone a bit thin on tact and just wants to goad.
