Surfing with Helen Bates - February 28, 2008 - Teapot stuff

Lots of pics - how teapots "should" look (according to this Canuck, a
"tea granny" from way back, and muy used to pouring her tea from the
famous "Brown Betty" teapot...

Most of the pots on these sites mostly have a spout with a "belly,"
starting fairly low on the pot. They end below the knob, usually, too,
as do the handles (if attached opposite the spouts.)
