Teapots hand-painted bone china


Have your photo hand-painted on to a teapot or buy additional products for us to hand-paint your photos on to.  If you have ordered a classic Balmoral with your own cat photo you could also add a teapot to your order and we will paint the same picture on that for you.  Place your order here and give your project a name – if this is an additional product with your photo you will need to give us the Project Name you gave when you ordered so that we understand the connection.

Once we will have received your order we will be in touch to confirm, left or right hand, any custom text and its location and confirmation of your order will contain an upload link for your photos.  Your order form will contain a link to upload your photos, you will need your project name or the name you used in this order

SKU: white-teapot Category:


Our teapots are white bone china. You definitely need a teapot to go with your mugs…  Personalise a teapot, mugplatejug or plate with one of your own pictures. Have your photos painted on to one of these lovely teapots.  These make fantastic presents, especially to someone who knows your pet well or perhaps just add it to your own collection. You could be drinking your morning cup of tea or coffee out of a very personal mug poured from a very personal teapot with milk from a personalise churn jug.  As we’ve done with our own pictures we will take your picture and paint it on to a teapot for you.  We’d do it in the same style as our normal jugs and mugs with a full picture one side and a “bum” or “paw” on the back.  We prefer the bum as it makes us smile but it’s your teapot you can choose a simple picture to go on the back, and of course, you can add some wording for no extra cost.

  1. Either side of the handle, or both sides of the handle.  When we paint the mug we leave plenty of space either side of the handle as this is a discrete but perfect place to add a name or a date of birth
  2. In between the two pictures, how much room, there is here depends on the pictures but there is almost always room to add a name, a date or a short message

What works best?

For pets, a full frontal picture with the eyes looking at you has the most impact.  Others positions and poses are possible so think through what would you like to see?  It helps if the picture is in focus, especially the eyes as this will help us reproduce the character of your pet.  We’ve put some examples in the product pictures.  We can work round hands holding a pet in place as long as key identifying features aren’t hidden.  If you are taking a new picture just for this we recommend getting down and being level with the pet for both the front picture and the rear on.  Taking Good Photos

Personalise as a gift

If you would like us to personalise someone else’s pet as a gift we just need the same style of photograph.  We can send the finished item to you or directly to the person in a gift box with a message from you.

Same Picture on additional products

If you order “your dog” on a classic Churn you can also have that same picture on say a classic Balmoral, once you have placed this order just go back and choose the other product you would like. You will be asked to give all the products you purchase the same project names so we can connect them.  If you are having several different pets painted please give each order a separate name.

How soon will I get my product?

Once you’ve placed your order the following will happen

  • You can upload your photos immediately on this link or use the link in your confirmation email.
  • We will be in touch by email to confirm that the photos are suitable and we can do a good job for you. What wording, if any, you want on the product and to give you an estimate of how long it will take us

From the point that we have a photograph, creating your mug, plate or other product takes about a week.  The nature of what we are painting makes a difference, if we have to build layers it takes longer as we will need to leave the mug for 24 hours for each layer to dry before we add the next one.  For example, we just painted Ninja who is a jet black kitten, we spread the painting over 5 days to ensure we really captured how black Ninja is and then be allowed the mug 2 days to dry completely before baking.  Once we see the photograph we will be able to tell you how long we need.

Before we start your project we will ask you to confirm all the above details and at this point, your order is no longer refundable.  Please see our terms and conditions

Customise with your own photo

Customise your teapot with your own photo and with a message or text.  If you order this we will enter a discussion with you by email or by phone to establish exactly what you want and where.   We will ask you to supply the spelling by email or by completing a form to ensure we don’t make any errors.  See examples of customising other products here

Care for your teapot

The painted teapots have a texture created by the build-up of the paint.  They are dishwasher safe and fade safe.  Do not use abrasive cloths or scourers on the painting and it can damage or remove the paint.
