You can only put water for one cup of tea in it, but it is só cute! This is because it is only 6 1/4″ wide and 4 1/3″ high. I think I would not use it at all. This little teapot would look great in the midst of my ‘book related stuff collection’. The teapot contains the works of seven English poets. It is hand cast and handpainted ceramic, made by The Pottery in the English Debenham.
