Teapot Lid

Teapot Lid

Teapot lid with mottled brown and white slip. Teapot lids were commonly discarded intact, if the teapot itself had broken. No doubt the coincidence of a lid from a broken teapot fitting a pot without a lid was too rare for lids to be kept for that eventuality. Dumped after the death of Mary Everett in 1908. Parts of two teapots were found in the same deposit, including a brown one, although this was a darker brown than the lid.
