My grandmother had a Royal Doulton teapot she came across somewhere. It was the Old Country Roses pattern and looked exactly like something out of a Jane Austen novel.
I don't know what happened to that teapot, but I surely would love to have had it. When I saw it at her house, I always thought it was so pretty, and I remember it from my earliest images of being at her house.
I'd also love to know where she got it. My grandmother wasn't exactly a Royal Doulton collector. I always wonder if someone from the church gave it to her.
