A good size

Nice and heavy (most look great but are then LIGHT)

Tasteful

Any recommendations?

Blue Tomato do a cool one - cream with more tea vicar on it.

Laduree? - a paltry £149 (but that includes 2 cups and 2 saucers too, so a real bargaingrin)

I have a plain, white, BIG teapot that my sister bought me from my local pottery shop.

I think you should get similar, don't ponce about trying to be fancy grin

whittards have some on sale at the moment (only a 6 cup one though)

ooooh stainless steel at John Lewis

very poncey

i have this one but the teabags get stuck in the spout so don't get it

Hmm I like the idea of a big white one but need a suitably study one

that le cruset one looks good but rather industrial looking lid

great thread title

I have this one although after that thread I probably shoudln't admit it

anyway it is capacious and pours very nicely and is very sturdy. I've had it 6 years and it is still going strong.

haven't you got some hideous £695 Portmeiron number left from your first wedding list? <snurk>

Yes Capp I probably DID have one

To match the Soup Tureen

Thread title made me laugh - I can just see the headline in the Sunday Times review "Credit crunch bites but teapot sales hold up well" grin

I have this one but I got it for about £30 in their seconds outlet shop.

I got a lovely Le Creuset one a couple of weeks ago (in volcano, natch) Think it was about £25...

oh, have just seen Ruby's link - it was that one (only more expensive hmm)
