This cute teapot came from Ebay from my sweet seller whose mom had the massive collection. Who could resist this pastoral themed Sadler teapot? Not me! It is a lovely teapot which has never had a pot of tea brewed in it. I need to change that!
One of the shining moments of my day is that when, having returned a little weary from an afternoon walk, I exchange boots for slippers, out-of-doors coat for easy, familiar, shabby jacket, and, in my deep, soft-elbowed chair, await the tea-tray…. [H]ow delicious is the soft yet penetrating odour which floats into my study, with the appearance of the teapot!… What a glow does it bring after a walk in chilly rain! ~George Gissing, The Private Papers of Henry Ryecroft, 1903
