Suffolk pottery firm inundated with 'Royal teapot' orders

Now after a busy few weeks waiting and watching for the royal baby, many involved in the preparation for the new arrival are now enjoying a well earned rest.

For one small pottery firm in Suffolk however, the hard work has only just begun. Carter's Teapot Pottery in Debenham has produced a teapot to mark the birth of the young Prince George and has been inundated with orders from around the world.

Each heart-shaped piece of pottery is hand made and hand painted. It takes around a week to make it from start to finish, meaning the small team is rushed off its feet, keeping up with demand from as far afield as Hong Kong and Australia.
