Good Questions: Displaying a Teapot Collection

Dear AT, I am moving in next week with my fiancé to our apartment, and I'm trying to find a clever/pleasing way to display my wicker handled teapot collection.  Our apartment is not very big, but I want them displayed in a functional and non-cluttered way.  The picture posted is some of the teapots from an old home. Thanks!! -simpleshelly

Got a good question you'd like answered? Send your queries and a photo or two illustrating your question, and we'll see if the ATLA team or our readers can help you out.

An excellent example of how to display a collection of like shaped items can be seen throughout a recent

, which provides both storage and the ability to see the complete shape of what is being displayed from the side and below.

If your collection isn't too large, a couple of vertically oriented shelves could be a space efficient display option, like these West Elm bibliotheque bookcases or a similar narrow bookcase.

Another idea we use in our home to display multiple items is with shadow boxes or block shelves, which give each piece their own discreet space, and you can mix and match different sizes for visual interest, or use all the same size/shape for collections with common dimensions.
