Another one from me: this little teapot is another Savers find. Can't remember whether it was Sydney Rd or Footscray. $2
I love this teapot. I love the typeface, the functional, practical design (might be a throw back to GDR style utilitarianism - I'm thinking The Lives of Others and 'grey men'). I believe Mitropa is/was the catering company for the German railways.
