/*A very deft version of a long-standing Ottawa tourist item there is an ironic appeal to these pieces that can never really be used—a true survival of a Victorian knickknack. The lid of the teapot was a replacement kindly provided by George Wigle and the maker, since the original was damaged.*/ —Ralph T. Coe
