This little one cup novelty teapot is a small reminder of the ill fated voyage of RMS Titanic and is dedicated to her memory.
On her maiden voyage en route to New York in 1912 the Titanic suffered a terrible fate following a collision with an iceberg that resulted in the loss of more than 1,500 lives.
She has become one of the most famous ships in history, her memory kept alive forever by numerous books, songs, films and tributes.
Handmade by Carters of Suffolk in a manufacturing process little changed since the early 17th century, each teapot takes around a week to complete and is an item of unrivalled quality.
Using a slip moulding process, the semi porcelain, high temperature earthenware teapots are individually hand painted using rich under glaze colours.
Highlighted using precious gold, the ship proudly displays its name before the final high gloss glaze is applied.
Each item is unique due to the hand crafted process, so there may be slight variation in brush stroke and colour as a result.
Although fully functional the One Cup design is often collected or displayed as an ornamental object. In collector terms the item could be described as rare since it is part of a very limited production run of 2000 teapots worldwide.
Handmade in the UK.
Size: 9 x 16 x 14.5 cm high
