150 Year Old Mad Hatter’s Teapot

What do you think the teapot on the Mad Hatter’s table would look like nearly 150 years after Lewis Carroll’s ideas were first shared?

Maybe the Dormouse’s tail will have merged into the handle because of all the times he was stuffed into it for falling asleep at the table, and the spout will have been used so much that it’s exploded, and one of the Talking Flowers has taken it’s place, while the Cheshire Cat’s disappearing grin has found a permanent home around it. The real Alice’s face might have imprinted itself on the side, very close to wear the White Rabbit’s feet, waistcoat and watch can now be found. The Mad Hatter’s hat might have replaced the lid’s handle after the millions of times the Hatter has used the pot, and his checked trousers might have slipped onto the teapot too. Perhaps the Looking Glass chess board has curiously found it’s way onto the teapot as well, time does funny things in Wonderland after all.
