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.

Still trying to finish the website. I apologize for taking so long. Been busy with the horses, and building websites for other people, so mine went to the back burner. Got a nice email from Edward's China Shop in the UK about their Brown Betty teapots, so I added a link to their site on my teapot homepage. If you want a REAL English Brown Betty, you can get one there.

Long Time, No See

Whew! It's been a long time since I was here last. Found a few more great teapots, and sold a few more collector's guides. One went to New Zealand, and one to the great-grandson of Mr. Alcock of ALB. Pretty cool, huh? Kind of nice to know that my little endeavor ended up scattered all over the world. Still looking for those all-elusive coffee pots and hot chocolate pots. Kudos to my buddy in California for finding them before me, but I'll beat you to one some day.
