'Thanks' for loan of Overtoun Bandstand to Stoke-on-Trent Garden Festival 1986. Designed by Reuben Bouverie, possibly manufactured by Anmac Ltd. The teapot and cup were exhibited at the Potteries Shopping Centre for some time in the 1980s
Me, my twin sister and big bro standing next to the big teapot!
Our father Reuben Bouverie designed this teapot and cup . I think he was working in association with a company in Nottingham that made buildings in plastic- it was called Anmac. My father died in 2020 but his colleague Reg Pegg still works in Nottingham at the university- he might know something. I vaguely remember Dad saying that the teapot and cup went abroad- maybe to Japan or the USA but I might have imagined it!
