Dr Grant’s Teapot
Glencoe Folk Museum

This teapot belonged to a much-loved Highland GP, Dr Lachlan Grant, who served the community of Ballachulish for 45 years until his death in 1945.

The teapot is special because of its design which features a stirrer attached to the lip, designed to facilitate equal stirring of the leaves. Made from electroplate silver, it is stamped with the maker’s mark ‘T.W.’ and was patented on April 4th 1918. It gives us a delightful insight into the mind and preoccupations of this inventive and interesting character with a penchant for unusual gadgets!
