Lady of the Manor teapot modeled by Shane Ridge and produced by Royal Doulton of Burslem, England, in a 2003 limited edition of 1,500. The Lady of the Manor is responsible for many things in the household including the stores, the baking, the brewing, the wine cellar and giving directions to the servants. She is also in charge of her daughter's education which includes how to manage the household. The Bunnykins Country Manor Tea Set is based on characters from the household of a typical English country manor at the beginning of the twentieth century. Royal Doulton Bunnykins tableware and figurines are popular ceramic designs manufactured as nursery dishes and collectible figurines. It originated with artwork by Sister Mary Barbara Bailey, the daughter of Cuthbert Bailey, general manager of Doulton during the 1930s. Sister Mary Barbara provided illustrations to the designers of Royal Doulton. The Lady's left arm holding a parasol forms the handle of the teapot while a gunpowder keg and a boquet of flowers forms the spout.
