Product Description

The famous Brown Betty Teapot is also available as the Cobalt Betty. This little teapot has quite a history. Its origins date back to the end of the 17th Century and the birth of the British Ceramic Teapot. The original unglazed teapot was made out of red clay from the Bradell Woods area in Stoke-on-Trent. Today the Cobalt Betty teapot is still made in Stoke-on-Trent with the same clay from the original area (exactly like our genuine Brown Betty). British people believe the Betty makes the best pot of tea because of the type of clay that is used and the shape of the pot. The 4 cup Cobalt Betty holds approximately 24 fluid ounces. Dimensions: 8.5 inches L x 6 inches H (with lid) x 3.5 inches W (mouth of teapot is 2.5 inches) This teapot is lovingly hand-made in Staffordshire England. Because these teapots are hand made, there may be some slight imperfections. These teapots are not intended for use in a microwave or on a stovetop. We recommend an electric tea kettle to boil the water for brewing your tea. Please Note: The Cobalt Betty teapots come with a back stamp that states "Adderley Ceramics Original Betty Made in England" .

Jenůfa review – Scottish Opera's co-production is intelligent and sensitive - The Guardian

“Don’t abandon my joyful stepdaughter,” Kostelnička implores the rakish Števa at the heart of Janáček’s desperately harrowing opera. But Števa walks away, disowning his baby and leaving its mother, Jenůfa, with options that are anything but joyful in a society whose women pay for mistakes beyond their due. Annilese Miskimmon ’s intelligent and sensitive new co-production for Scottish Opera and Danish National Opera relocates the drama from Moravia to the west of Ireland in 1918, where interior decorations and social dynamics feel unnervingly close... later the drama moves inside to a handsome period kitchen, astutely rendered down to the brown betty teapot. With heartbreaking empathy and an eye for subtle gesture, Miskimmon makes every character reasoned, every disastrous decision explicable, every relationship as complicated as real life. It’s like watching a troubled slice of your own family history. Source: www.theguardian.com
