Donald Duck Mangle teapot
The Donald Duck Mangle teapot is a collectible novelty teapot based on the Walt Disney character Donald Duck.
The teapot was created by the renowned British potter Paul Cardew as part of the Disney Character Teapot Collection. Cardew is responsible for a large number of Disney novelty teapots and has also worked with companies such as Royal Doulton and Portmeirion Potteries, in addition to designing the iconic range of Natwest Pig money-banks.
His teapots are highly collectible, with a number of collectors clubs dedicated to his work.
The Disney Donald Mangle teapot
The Donald Mangle teapot depicts the character of Donald Duck trapped in an old-fashioned clothes mangle with a basket beneath, accompanied by a foaming sponge and three wooden clothes pegs (all with faces).
Each teapot measures approximately 8” tall and is hand-painted with a slightly varied colour scheme for each. They were produced from 1997 until 2001 in a limited edition of 5,000, and each is individually numbered on the base along with the ‘Cardew Collectibles’ mark, the artist’s signature and the Disney Showcase Collectibles logo.
How much is a Donald Duck Mangle teapot worth?
Although the teapot was produced in a limited edition, they were issued as ‘collectibles’ and as such are relatively easy to find in boxed, mint condition. They have not yet achieved a rarity value and can be found on auction sites such as eBay for less than $50.
