Mariage Frere Teapot - Help!

by nytea » Oct 6th 05 2:43 am

:(
Several years ago my husband had a business trip to Paris and brought me a Mariage Frere teapot. Unfortunately, the lid has broken and cannot be glued back together. Can I get a replacement lid in the US? Or anywhere? I tried the MF website but couldn't find the teapot I was looking for. Any ideas???

Um, make a lamp out of it? Use it as a watering pot, or a planter! Smash it all to bits, and use the pieces for a mosaic.
Seriously folks, try edish.com or replacements.com. They might have a sutible lid or maybe a banged up pot with a good lid. You could use the banged up pot for the items mentioned above. ;)
If you speak french well enough, you could try calling the company or e-mailing them. Sometimes they'll have so few of a piece in stock, they won't list it on the site.
Hope this helps!
