English Pearlware Childs Miniature Teapot Country Life Scenes Staffordshire 1830 For Sale
Childs Miniature Teapot
SCENES from COUNTRY LIFE
Staffordshire England c. 1830
This miniature teapot was originally
part of an early English child's or doll’s toy tea set. The little pitcher stands
3 3/4" tall on 4 little bun feet and measures 6” long with a flower
finial, moulded spout and serpant handle. The pot was finely potted, transfer
printed in black on creamy earthenware, finished with
pearlware glaze and a hand painted black outline along the rims and handle. Decorated
with two 'genre' scenes of life in the country and on the farm, one side showing a and girl and her child size doll sitting on a bench under a shade tree, and the other showing a shepherd with his flock of sheep. The
lid has partial transfers which echo the rest of the piece. Exquisite naive folk art imagery, a
beautiful example of early 19th century miniature transferware.
Typically, the teapot is unmarked. Based
on the form and floral finial, the maker is possibly Hackwood in the Staffordshire
region of England.Similar sets have also been attributed to the Swansea
region. One of the earliest wares intended for children to play with, used to
instruct them in proper table manners or for a playtime tea party or simply to
decorate a dollhouse table.
The teapot is in only fair condition with a chip on the outer and inner rim, chipping along the edge of the lid, and a smalller ship inside the rim. Transfer imperfections skips (shepherds face) some minor discoloration consistent with age and prior use. Still great example of early miniature antique ceramics, elegant in its
simplicity with earthy and whimsical scenes of country life - a fine miniature
to add to your black transferware collection or any AAFA Americana advanced
collection! Offered as is. We have also listed other early pearlware miniatures
