Balloon Man/Balloon Woman two-sided teapot modeled by Anthony Cartlidge and produced by Royal Doulton of Burslem, England, in a 2002 Royal Doulton International Collectors Club limited edition of 1,000. The Balloon Man and Balloon Woman could often be found wandering the streets of nineteenth century London selling balloons to passersby. One of many street vendors vying for Londoners' coins, they would shout "Balloons for sale!" at the bustling throng. With their bright array of colors, the balloon street sellers became magnets for every boy and girl, as well as often for their parents. Nothing can compete with the delight of the Victorian street urchin who was fortunate enough to grasp the string of his first balloon handed to him by the Balloon Seller. A string of balloons form the handle of the teapot while a tree trunk forms the spout.
