Norwich Castle Museum and Art Gallery

Norwich Castle

Many of the Castle Museum's teapots are on display in the Twining Teapot Gallery and range from the elegant to the quirky. They date from the 1730s right through to the 1980s. In the Twining Teapot Gallery you can see a teapot with two spouts, as well as teapots in all sorts of shapes - a first world war tank, a cabbage, a castle, bamboo and a monkey to give just a few examples. They also come in all sizes (from miniature teapots no higher than your finger to giant teapots longer than your forearm). Agate Teapot, possibly by Thomas Whieldon, 1745-1750A large proportion of teapots made today are mass-produced. Many of the early teapots in the museum were made and decorated by hand, however - sometimes by children. Other teapots have a 'marbled' appearance which was achieved by mixing different coloured clays together (called 'Agate Ware'). Later on teapots were decorated with transfers - a technique which is still widely used today.
