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.

This is Harry Garner. He was a jollier at Alcock, Lindley and Bloore. He was a member of the Westlands Bowling Club and racked up an unbeaten run of 65 games from 1955 to 1957. He passed away in 2004, at the age of 97. This gives me hope that there might still be people alive who remember the factory and some of the people who worked there.
