The teapot is AN OLD FASHIONED STYLE 1950s / 1960s BAKERLITE TELEVISION SET. THE COLOURING OF THE TV TEAPOT IS JUST LIKE A BAKERLITE TV. HOW TELEVISION SETS HAVE CHANGED OVER THE YEARS. I THINK THIS TEAPOT IS RATHER RARE,AS I HAVE NOT SEEN MANY,BUT I CANNOT BE CERTAIN. THE BAKERLITE TV HAS THE SOUND BOX UNDERNEATH THE TV SCREEN. THERE 2 BLACK KNOBS EACH SIDE OF THE SOUND BOX. IN THOSE DAYS TV CONTROLS WERE VERY BASIC. THE PICTURE ON THE TV SCREEN I THINK IS THE OLD FASHIONED TEST CARD, AS PROGRAMES THEN DID NOT RUN FOR THE CONTINUOUS 24 HOURS,LIKE NOWADAYS. THE TEST CARD PICTURE ON THE TV SCREEN IS AN OLD FASHIONED TELEVISION TRANSMITTER. THE SCRIPT ON THE SCREEN READS: TEA VEE BREAKFAST NEWS. THE LID OF THE TEAPOT,IS A SMALL TABLE LAMP WITH A YELLOW SHADE, PLACED ON THE TOP OF THE TELEVISION. The teapot stands 7 inches high, and measures 7.25 inches handle to spout.
