|Mentioned||The Glass Ceiling|
A Royles Self-Pouring Teapot was invented by John James Royle and made by Doulton & Co. in 1886.
Contable George Crabtree found it referenced in a book of patents as one invented by Jacques Raphoz (see Trivia below) in 1892 during the investigation of the murder of Percival Pollack ("The Glass Ceiling").
- Jacques Raphoz is actually a member of the art department for Murdoch Mysteries. His name appears in the patent book as an in-joke.
