Kitchenware is an area that has a large diversity in its content. All these items would find a nice home in a kitchen, and all relate to food, but the variety of items which Robin Hood has reached is remarkable. On one end of the range there are the painted, classic-looking teapot and plates and on the other are the mass-produced cardboard cereal box and drink coasters.

Robin Hood in Sherwood Forest Teapot

The prized and revered Robin Hood in Sherwood Forest teapot, Sadler, No. 2019293. It is hand marked Y510S on the base. On one side the pot depicts Robin Hood in the forest with his merry men and on the other the Sheriff of Nottingham is inside a castle with his henchmen and wife. The lid looks like the top of a castle. Plantagenet crests face front and back, and oak leaves and acorns decorate the top.The sides bear two inscriptions: "The Sheriff of Nottingham" and "Robin Hood in Sherwood Forest," which line up with the appropriate sides of the teapot.
