Recently I bid on a teapot on Ebay with Cunard Steamship Company stamped on the bottom with Cunard Lion logo.It is the square design of teapot made by "Foley" I was somewhat suprised at the size of it upon arrival.It is around 3.5" square.I had assumed it would be a full size pot.Can anyone tell me was this the standard size of teapots on the Cunarders? Surely there were bigger ones.If you were thirsty you would only manage one cup out of this one! I have looked again on Ebay and have seen a couple on offer again of this Lilliputian design.Many thanks.

3.5" high sounds like a teapot from a childs set. Cunard did make them for kids to play with on board.

They also had covered creamers that looked like small teapots.

One of the best resources is www.luxurylinerrow.com. Even though its a site that sells liner stuff, the china they have on sale has good explanations.

Try there for some information.

Thanks Grant.Have emailed them so will await a reply.Still very pleased with it though.It's certainly an art deco design so fits in nicely with the age of Queen Mary and Queen Elizabeth.
