The Walking teapot



The Walking teapot was originally designed by Roger Michell and Danka Napiorkoswka made by Lustre Pottery then by Carlton Ware, it sold in its thousands.
The Walking teapot has been manufactured consistently since 1973 and is now available from Price Kensington in Stoke on Trent, although the quality is poor.
When Carlton Ware went out of business in 1988 Roger continued some collectors editions which were hand made by them in their studio.
None of these have been made by Carlton Ware. Another small pottery oddly named "Rising Hawk" also made some of their
designs notably the "Long John Silver" which was a walking teapot with a wooden leg and a parrot.

i have a Carlton ware walking teapot, and it is splendid beast (but use a tea ball. No grating within.) and a Long John Silver milk jug. They are only big enough to serve two people, sadly. But Andy, you must spellcheck the people you get content from. I knew it wasn't your way to misspell 'consistent'and I know you are more reliable than 'potery.' You're just seeing if anyone's paying attention.

Hello
What is the backstamp they use for the Price Kensington new walking ware now. And di they start off with the short leg cups and progress onto the running and long leg cups. Does any one know!
