There are a number of collectable tea pots with some increasing in value all the time.
One such designer is Annie Rowe who was born in Lancashire and spent her childhood in London where she later studied a four year degree in Art and Design.
She has been designing collectables for over 20 years, drawing upon her love of nature and her travels around the world.
She started her working life in publishing and advertising before using her skill to create top quality collectables.
One of my favourite tea pots of hers is from The Village Teapot Collection, Spring Cottage which you can see from the photo below.
