Ive been searching for one of these Pyrex teapots for about five years – that was the last (and only) time I’ve ever seen another one! Sadly the one that I found all those years ago had a damaged lid, but I loved it so much that I bought it anyway and kept it for myself (the damage fortunately isn’t visible unless you take the lid off the teapot). The coffee percolator versions are hard enough to find, but these Flameware teapots are crazy rare! It may seem like a strange thing to get excited about, but for me it’s the simplicity of the design that’s so attractive – it’s so plain that it could go in any kitchen, and definitely wouldn’t look out of place in a contemporary space, despite the fact that it’s got to be at least forty-or-so years old. And while I’ve called it a teapot, you can use it as a kettle on a gas stove, which is exactly what I used mine for – we had an electric kettle in Durban, but my Pyrex teapot sat on the stove as a permanent fixture, and was put to good use whenever the lights went out (which at one point was quite often!).
