A woman in my class came in with a teapot she purchased in the 70's while in Banff. Anyone care to guess who made? She purchased it for $25 which she thought was a bargain at the time. There was an old tea bag in it as she was still using it. The curator at the Burlington Arts Centre said if she would donate it to the collection he would give her a tax receipt for in excess of $3000. Not a bad Return on Investment. She said no she would rather continue to use it for the occassional tea. It had a nice locking lid and the giveaway lug on the handle.
