This teapot drip catcher is a clever design to stop the dribbles from teapots after you pour the tea. I liked it so well, I made my own with a couple of appropriate metal buttons threaded on narrow elastic. A curved piece of 16 gauge wire to hook on the teapot handle and a bit of sponge to absorb the excess tea completed the handy design. As a bonus, it holds the lid on securely.
Or use a teapot with a reverse spout. I have one, and it never drips. It is made of that classic red clay like the famous Sadler Brown Betty teapots. With a little research I found that it was made before 1931 by the Alcock, Lindley & Bloore factory formerly located on Clough Street, Hanley, Stoke-on-Trent, England between 1916 and 1976.
