I bought a teapot....... Just a teapot....... An old one, and kind of unusual. I had to find out about the maker's mark, and thus began a wonderful journey! 15 years later, and I now have over 250 ALB teapots. Not to mention a couple of coffee pots, a tankard, milk jugs, sugar bowls, and a plate. Little by little, more people are being enticed by these lovely teapots, and starting collections of their own. This blog was set up so that all ALB lovers could have a place to meet, share photos, ask questions, and in general get to know each other and share their appreciation for these lovely teapots. If you leave a question, please be kind enough to leave an email address, so someone may send you an answer!

So come on in, sit down, have a "cuppa", and enjoy.

Handle and Spout

Just got a very nice email from Linda at the Handle and Spout blog. She has a lovely site, with a nice pic of some of her teapots. Seems she has decided it's time to add to her collection. BRAVO! Won't be too long before I have to start a "Teapots Anonymous" clinic. But, hey, and least we can have tea and scones while we work through our overwhelming need for teapots. So now that Linda is back, stop by her blog at: Handle and Spout and say hello. When you get there, just type "Alcock" in the search box.

You're a dear! I'm ready for Teapots Anonymous whenever you are. Haven't done a count lately, but at one time I had more teapots than cups -- now that's bad!

Well, can't say anything about too many teapots. I have TWO "proper" teacups, and one Tourqay "beaker". Not only am I addicted to these teapots, I'm a bit particular about "me tay", and what I drink it out of. Sheesh.........even I think I'm over the top sometimes. But, hey, keeps me off the streets, and that's a good thing, right??
