Policeman and Felon two-sided teapot modeled by Anthony Cartlidge and produced by Royal Doulton of Burslem, England, in a 2002 limited edition of 1,500. A policeman is someone who is dedicated to upholding the law and keeping the peace. He actively pursues anyone who breaks the law and brings them to justice. A felon is a person responsible for committing a felony and is generally a social outcast. The term felony is used principally in criminal law for very serious crimes, whereas misdemeanors are considered to be less serious offenses. It is principally used in criminal law in the United States legal system. This felon is looking over his shoulder as the policeman is hot on his trail. The bars of a jail cell form the handle of the teapot while the felon's right arm forms the spout.
