(cf. Edward Bramah's "NOVELTY TEAPOTS five hundred years of art and design" pub.1992 page 188 illus.no.475. Bramah claims that these teapots were manufactured by Carlton Ware, however, if this is true then the example illustrated above most likely pre-dates Carlton Ware examples as Carlton Ware extremely rarely produced anything without their own printed mark being displayed. eg. on items too small for the backstamp - which is certainly not the case in this instance)
