The Re-engineered Brown Betty Teapot is the result of a three-year research and development project by the award-winning British designer Ian McIntyre. Working with Cauldon Ceramics, historical precedents in the history of the Brown Betty including patents from the 1920s have been re-introduced – such as the ‘locking lid’ and the ‘non-drip spout’. New design details have also been implemented - including a stacking facility and a loose leaf tea infuser. Great care has been taken to respect the traditions of this everyday object which has transcended fashions and trends to become a classic. The Re-engineered edition was nominated for the prestigious Beazley Designs of the Year at The London Design Museum in 2018. The design has since been entered into the permanent collections of The London Design Museum, Manchester Art Gallery England and York Art Gallery England.
