Funny you should bring this up! I just finished this here teapot not too long ago:

I'm drying it verrrry slooooowly for obvious reasons. The spout really does come up over the top of the lid (barely), it just doesn't look like it from this angle.
(This is actually the second time I'm making this teapot. The first time the spout was too short and when it was fired, the lid was fired on the pot accidentally - and not by me!)
