  • $\begingroup$ Oh, this is too easy. I am not going to look at the answer, but am very certain I know what it is (I like maths, so that helps) :P $\endgroup$ – Mr Pie Sep 21 '18 at 9:44

    $\begingroup$ @user477343 easy is not bad, actually the question was answered by the third person looking at this, so i feel free to say its hard enough to be entertaining. And sometimes easy riddles are nice to solve $\endgroup$ – user52327 Sep 21 '18 at 9:48

I think the teapot is

Plane

My first teapot is on the ground

A plane is a flat surface or flat area of land.

My second teapot is in the air

Plane is also short for aeroplane

My first teapot is plain

Flat planes are not very interesting to look at

My second teapot is advanced

(Aero)planes are a technological achievement.

My first teapot is unsorted

Mathemetical planes have affine symmetry so we can move them around and they look the same

My second teapot is very structured

(Aero)planes have a lot of structure to them.

My first teapot can have a promotory

A promotory is a raised mass of land that projects into a lowland (plane)

My second teapot has a nose

An (aero)plane has a nose.

  • $\begingroup$ Jop thats right... that went faster than the 19th ridldle $\endgroup$ – user52327 Sep 21 '18 at 9:27
  • $\begingroup$ I think it was the last hint that clinched it for me. I was trying to think why you would mention a nose and not any other part of a face. $\endgroup$ – hexomino Sep 21 '18 at 9:29
