Three Limited Edition Leyburn Swineside Tea pottery: Since we established our business in 1978, our witty and original designs have been sought out by collectors in every corner of the world, from Iceland to Saudi Arabia, from Moscow to Hawaii. We have made teapots in all kinds of extraordinary shapes: cakes and cocktail bars, bubble-cars and bellhops, radios and radiators, pianos and packing cases, tents and toasters ... even a teatime replica of the front door of No 10 Downing Street. And because each of our teapots is cast and decorated entirely by hand, every teapot we sell is unique and individual. Our off-beat designs have been spotted lurking on the sets of any number of TV shows (Absolutely Fabulous, The Golden Girls ...), films and even pop videos. The Tea pottery itself has featured in countless fashion magazines and newspapers, and has appeared in TV programmes as diverse as Dales Diary, the Japanese Mono Shobu show and Bargain Hunt.
