Mind you, I'm more of a coffee drinker than a tea drinker. But my mother-in-law was British and she gave me my first teapot. I'm a bit in love with it. There's nothing fancy about it, but I look at it and it just feels like "home." And I think that's what teapots are often all about to me. I look at them and I think of a family sharing time (and tea). Or a group of friends sitting around a table together. Maybe it's just me, but I look at a teapot and get all sorts of positive vibes. So, here are a few interesting ones.
Le Chat Noir (the black cat) from the Metropolitan Museum of Art Store, this single-serve teapot is based on Theophile-Alexandre Steinlen's book of illustrations, Des Chats (1898) in the museum collection.

Shoes were always on her mind...

A simple cast iron teapot
Of course, there are many more out there. Here's one that's very similar to my own favorite teapot.
I can't help wondering where this search will lead me next. Types of tea? Tea infusers? We'll see.
