Teacessories: Knitted Ceramic Teapots

I’ve already had several questions about the teapot in my header so I thought I’d give you some details today.

This teapot was a gift from my aunt several years ago. I haven’t actually used it to serve myself tea – instead I use it more as decor. I just love it though.

Now for the sad news. I researched where one could buy this teapot and it turns out that it was made by Department 56 and was part of their 2008 Christmas Collection (Winter Mountain), which was discontinued in 2009, so it is no longer available.  It looks like they occasionally come up for auction on eBay or other places, and if you’re really on the hunt for one you could keep an eye on the item at Replacements.com.  For those who wish to hunt it was listed as item number 796772, Teapot and Lid.

In my search for the details on my teapot I found a couple of other suitable candidates at decent price points.

I like the Wee Aran Teapot from Shop Irish for $14.99.

Wee Aran Teapot, ShopIrish.com, $14.99

I also found a teapot at Classic Coffee & Tea by Yedi that comes in red, white or blue for $39.99:

Actually Yedi has a whole “Sweater Collection” of items including this fun set of 6 mugs for $49.99.
