Blue Staffordshire Childs Teapot Beehive Bee Skep Urn 1840 Ridgway Pearlware For Sale

Blue Staffordshire Childs Teapot Beehive Bee Skep Urn 1840 Ridgway Pearlware

Miniature Pearlware Transferware
Childs Teapot
BEEHIVE ~ INDUSTRY
William Ridgway & Co Staffordshire, England c. 1840

This is a stunning miniature transferware teapot, originally part of a child's complete tea set. The squat lidded pitcher stands about 4 1/4" tall on a raised pedestal base and measures about 7 1/2" from the tip of the spout to the edge of the fancy dolphinlike handle. A stunning lily flower finial. The color is a rich cobalt blue with a pearlware glaze. The piece is impeccably potted and light bodied.

The little teapot depicts a beehive or beeskep buzzing with activity, in the center of a lavish flower garden with an urn of flowers. A tiny sawtooth on the edge and a bold yet delicate floral border trim finishes off the inner rim. The beehive repeats on each side of the cup and again on the inside bottom. The decoration is very rich, with very little white space remaining.

The teapot is unmarked except for a printed daisy tally mark. The pattern was made by William Ridgway, a pottery maker in the Staffordshire district in the early to mid-19th century. We have also seen a nearly identical pattern marked with the backstamp of William Adams. The pattern name is Beehive.

The teapot is in great condition with fleabite nibbling on the tip of the spout, and no chips cracks or repairs. Only minor manufacturing imperfections original to the making. An excellent example, and a glorious addition to any collection.
