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.
