It's #BrewMonday, a day where the Samaritans are asking people to reach out to friends and family and gather (virtually) for a cup of tea and a natter.
To mark this day of tea, we have put together a list of some of the many interesting teapots in the collections we care for. So choose your fanciest teapot or favourite mug, pour yourself a cuppa and take a look...
The double spout
Perhaps the most structurally bizarre of the teapots in the collection, this double- spouted teapot could be used for pouring two cups at once, saving time for dunking!
These three teapots all use the crest of Hampshire towns as the main design. The crests of Botley, Aldershot and Eastleigh can be seen on a mostly white backdrop.
This is perhaps the most easily recognised ceramic style - Jasperware, a type of pottery created by Josiah Wedgwood in the 1770s. The Wedgwood company was founded in 1759 in Stoke-on-Trent. This teapot dates to the latter part of the 19th century and uses a darker shade of 'Wedgwood blue'.
Take a break
What is the best accompaniment to a cuppa? It's got to be a biscuit, surely?
