We stumbled on to this real beauty:
Teapot Lovers Red from the DanielBooneTradingPost ($34.50, porcelain red toile-print teapot).
It's so very 'Downtown Abbey! And we like the size of this Madison Bay reproduction teapot, measuring 9 1/2". It breathes British aristocrat.
This makes for a lovely holiday gift, and looks much more expensive than it really is. A party hostess would enjoy receiving a present like this.
If you're scrambling around, frantic for the perfect holiday gift, try a tempting teapot like this one.
